Maybe you should master the numerals 0 through 9 first then decide what page I posted on.

Ok, still page 3. I didn't even have to pull out the toes since it was under 10!

Ok so, .9999999999999999999999999 = 1?

if so then .988888888888888888888= .9999999999999999999

and that means .9777777777777777777= .9888888888888888888

Where does it end?

I'm trying to understand the logic behind this theory. I'm keeping an open mind here, even though I feel the same way, one is one and that is all it will ever be.

If you are going to quote me, please don't edit what I said, because then the point is lost.

no, .9999999... = 1

.9888... is not equal to .999... They are exactly .01 apart.

.999 is a finite string. You stopped at the thousandths place. .999... with the three little dots afterwards represents an infinite string. The line never ends. Ever.

So as to my original post, under what logic, what theory can I mathematically figure .999... to = 1?

That's all I want to know.

For instance, by that logic, .99999... =1

So .8888888... = .9?

I give up, I'm seriously wondering how this works and no one will explain it.

THEREFORE I WILL BASH ANY OPINION NOT MY OWN!!!
