10x=9.9repeating to infinity-1 with a 0 at the end
9x=8.9repeating to infinity - 1 with a 1 at the end
x=.9repeating to infinity.
You do not understand infinity

There is no end to it

Saying things like there would be a 0 in the last spot shows that...

It doesn't have an end...It goes on forever...I don't think you quite understand that...Saying there are numbers after an infinity of 9 is just wrong
