And like I said...

The equation
Quote:

x=0.9r

10x=9.9r

10x-x=9.9r-.9r

9x=9

x=1

x=1=0.9r



It is true

This is just a basic equaiton of equality

But ANY number for x and in the end, it will come out what x equals...if you stick 8 in, you will end up with 8...If you stick 0.4 repeating...Guess what, you'll end up with 0.4 repeating...If you stick 100.5 in , you'll end up with 100.5...........And if you stick 0.9r you'll end up with 1
