There's no way it doesn't
Exactly. That's pretty much the easiest way to demonstrate it for those who suck at the math. 0.9... is exactly equal to 1.

What also blows those kinds of people's minds is that there are different values of infinity.

The meaning of "" (ellipsis) in 0.999 must be precisely specified. The use here is different from the usage in language or in 0.999, in which the ellipsis specifies that some finite portion is left unstated or otherwise omitted. When used to specify a recurring decimal, "" means that some infinite portion is left unstated. In particular, 0.999 indicates the limit of the sequence (0.9,0.99,0.999,0.9999,) (or, equivalently, the sum of all terms of the form 9 0.1k for integers k=1 to infinity). Misinterpreting the meaning of 0.999 accounts for some of the misunderstanding about its equality to 1.
Quote:
As with integers, any two finite decimals with different digits mean different numbers (ignoring trailing zeros). In particular, any number of the form 0.999, where the 9s eventually stop, is strictly less than 1.
.99...9 is different than .999.....

To all of you believer that think .9999... = 1, do this:


Get a pen and paper and start writing .99999999999.......
when you've finally reached 1, give me a call.

So you're effectively stating that 0.3333... isn't 1/3.

So by this logic does that mean that 1/2 is not 0.5 but in fact 0.49999...?? How about 1/4 0.25 is really 0.249999...?

1/2 does = .4999... which does = .5
.24999... = .25

They're different ways of expressing the same value.
