If this doesn't interest you. . .

0.999... or 0.(9), how ever you want to represent a repeating decimal of 9, is equal to 1.

But I assume you already knew that.
If you didn't, think about it.

Actually, it's very simple. . .

1/3 = 0.333..., 2/3 = 0.666..., 3/3 = 0.999... = 1

WRONG3/3=1/1=13/3 doesnt

WRONG

3/3=1/1=1

3/3 doesnt equal .99999999

Try putting 3/3 in google.

As i said take a math class.

Edit: oh you $(%&*er

Some students interpret "0.999…" (or similar notation) as a large but finite string of 9s, possibly with a variable, unspecified length. If they accept an infinite string of nines, they may still expect a last 9 "at infinity".[

3/3 is still 1 not 0.(9)

0.(9) can be rounded up to 1 but because there is a infinite .99...9... that doesnt end it never reaches 1. it would be asking for a end to PI, now stop with these mathimatical paradoxes. You might end up destroying the world or the universe. leave these for the lecture halls of your Mathamatics department of your local university or college.

Too many lonely hearts in the real world
Too many bridges you can burn
Too many tables you can't turn
Don't wanna live my life in the real world

I just recently found a fact

I just recently found a fact that is interesting but disturbing and thus is too distrubing to post here. Also the fact might violate some rule of some sort (;>.>)
