That's what I've been trying to tell him for an hour.

If 0 goes repeated infinity, how will there be anything on the back of it?

the same way that 0 is repeated to infinity...in theory only.

If something gets repeated to infinity...

There can't possibly be something on the back of that...Think about that


You are repeating something forever...


That means it is not going to stop...If you think you can add a 1 at the end, why could'nt have a 0 taken the place of the 1...And kept the 0s going on forever...

it's also impossible to repeat somehting to infinity. all of this is done in theory, not in the real world. in theory, it is possible to do things like any integer divided by inifinity, and get a value, yet in reality, you can't divide something into an infinite number of pieces. you also can't have an infinite number of zeros in reality, and no, you can't put a 1 behind an infinite number of zeros in reality. but in theory, all of these things are possible.

I'm really not sure as to why this is a question. No, it's not 1. Do you grasp the concept of "infinity?" it will never round up to 1. never. never ever. thus infinity.

it will get closer and closer to 1 for infinity but it will never get there, it's an asymptote.

I mentioned something similar to this in another thread. No you would never eat it all because there would still be an extremely small fraction of sandwich left. My explanation was taking a point 20 feet from a wall and keep halfing the distance, the point will never reach the wall. It's a basic geometric rule that there are an infinite amount of points on a line.

If the 9 is going to go on forever...

The 0 too will have to go forever...


And you can't just add a 1 on to the infinite amount of 0s because, well... why couldn't you just add a another 0 in the place of the last 1 you said of adding?

The 0s would go on forever, the 1 would never hit...

There will be no end to the 0s, its infinite...

Go against the

2 arguments for why it is TRUE

but it still wouldn't equal 0 because there is an obvious visual distance. I know I know, never assume in Math. 0 = 0, 0 doesnt equal 0.1

Case for TRUE

1. 1/3=0.3 repeating

Times both sides by 3

1=0.9 repeating?





you've stated a falsehood as a fact, as has been mentioned ealier. 1/3 does not equal 0.3 repeating. they nearly equivalent expressions, but they are not equal. since your basis for the proof begins with a flasehood, the rest of the statements can not be taken reasonable arguement proving something.

What you are saying is there is a bigger number than a number list that goes on to infinity...


That just sounds totally wrong...

Numbers go all the way to infinity period...Infinity is a real concept if you look at it that way...



So you are gonna say right here that "in theory" there is a number bigger than infinity (Numbers that go to infinity)?
