As in, 0.999 repeating.

I am aware this is hotly debated, but it is confirmed by mainstream mathematics that 1=0.999. I just wanted to see the argument on here. It seems like you guys might have fun with this.

My grades are as good/bad as the next guy, but if you divide 1 by three, 0.333, then you multiply it back by three, you get 0.999. Therefore 1=0.999.

Also, I have 1.999 equations to prove that 1=0.999:

x=0.999

10x=9.999

10x-x=9.999-0.999

9x=9

x=1

and

x=0.999, which is what we started with.

1/9=0.111

(1/9)x9=0.111x9

1=0.999

Boom.
