Just found this site. Looks interesting, so I signed up. Typing on my phone so it's slow going with these tiny buttons. I'm a retired guy, 66 years "young"who always enjoyed math, especially the wonders of geometry. Not very good at much, but I still like to ponder things. Retired from the South Carolina State Museum after 30 years last year. I am also a musician and active amateur astronomer.
I ran across the topic of "Does 0.999... = 1?" online (which is how I discovered this site). I'd like to know where I can read some discussion about that on here. Anyone know where to find it?
Anyway, cheers to all. Glad to be here.
You can search for it but all those threads are now closed.
In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.
Thanks. Very curious problem that was.
Uh...I see, after a little searching that the topic has caused a bit of a stir...so...let me divert upon another path to begin my happy journey here. Had no idea.
Welcome to the forum!
I don't know much about what happened with those threads, although my understanding is that it was the misbehaviour of one persistent individual that caused the stir.
