OT: "Interesting" Math Question 2
Does 0.9 repeating = 1?
Case for FALSE 0.9 repeating doesn't equal 1 because well because it is not 1 period...It is just a little less...It is the number that is closest possible to 1...It is just a little short...Basically, its just not 1...Its just a "little off"...Its just not there yet... Case for TRUE 1. 1/3=0.3 repeating Times both sides by 3 1=0.9 repeating? 2. What is 1(0.9 repeating)? 0? If its 0, then its 0.9 repeating must be 1 also... So does 1=0.9 repeating? 
its 0.99999999 (infinite) thus less than 1.

No..Its like an asymptote on a graph...it keeps getting closer and closer but will never reach that number. .9 repeating does not equal 1.

.
this seems really obvious.

it's .0 repeating 1

Actually 1.000.999= .001... Not .011 like you have it going... Or 1.0000000.999999=.000001 Not .01111 So if it was 1=0.9 repeating, then what? 
Come on, anybody want to against the 2 Cases saying it is True?
Don't tell me 1/3 doesn't equal 0.3 repeating...You could divide 1 by 3 yourself, and you'll get an infinite amount of 0.3 repeatings... And if you do times that by 3, you got 0.9 repeating, while 1/3 becomes 1... And What is 10.9 repeating then?

0.000009, you get the picture. And then they say LAUSD students are dumb.

"0.000009" come from? What were you trying to answer with that...

Take a point that is 20 feet from a wall, you move it half the distance to the wall (10 ft), if you keep halfing your distance, you will never reach the wall.

1/3 = 0.3 repeating exactly...not 0.3 period... Quote:
What math are you in? 1.0000.999 is NOT 0.111 like you have things working out.... its 0.001.... Think about what I just told you there So lets ask again... What is 10.9 repeating...
