It´s Good to see the Fools are Still on this site!....

Now let´s get back to the serous people that come on this site! that are prepared to talk Math! and argue their case! Rather than coming on for five minutes! making ill informed and derogatory remarks! then run away with their tail between their legs! because they have no substance for what they believe in!...

### Re: 0.9999....(recurring) = 1?

actually, another 'proof' would be:

find the difference of 1 and 0.999...

it should be something like

0.000.........1

atthe end. BUT there is absolutely no end. so the difference will be equal to

0.000.....
=
0

so 0.9999... is indeed 1.

Really?

I shall be on leave until I say so...

Oh, dear me! As I wipe away a small tear from my cheek, I remind you all that all we need to do to get rid of Anthony is to ignore him. Stop feeding the local wildlife and it'll stop scratching on your door.

Landof+, we've already tried using logic with ARB. The simple fact of the matter is that he'll abandon all reason and just shout a lot, then claim to have gotten his point across. There's really no use in... well, anything at all with him since he won't listen to reason or anything else.

I think there is a rule out there somewhere saying that infinites equal to a finite number. i think that's how they solved the Achilles and the Tortoise Paradox

Better to stick with the Subject matter!...Otherwise we will be going along the Multiple Examples Route! that have little to do with the Original Problem!...a Bit like the Multiple Meaningless Calculations on the Infinite/Recurring 0.9 Original 0.9

It's still infinite and finite, way close to the 'subject'...

I have! a flawless proof!

mathsy's Proof. by mathsy. 20/10/2007
Assume that 0.999... ≠ 1.
Then, by assumption, 0.999... ≠ 1.

Therefore, we can conclude that 0.999... ≠ 1.

So... I guess not, then.

And we were doing such a good collective job of not replying to ARB. Now it's just too tempting!

Don't mind Anthony's attempted insult. He's just a little upset right now because the admin's at Wikipedia finally got so fed up with his nonsense arguments and inability to properly respond to counter arguments that they locked him out of the .999... discussion page over there. ;-)
