Eater of Worlds
Both cancel culture and toxic people caused a crisis in my life, I hate them.
0.9999... being equal to 1 is true, it's just that the academic proofs are imcomplete-ish since you wouldn't expect elementary grade children to understand the intricacies of that. (until you learn calculus that is)If 0.999999... is 1. Than is 1 also 1.111111...? Would this also mean that Infinity is Zero if we count hard enough? But no... It can't be. 0 = 1 is illegal and the concept of 0.999999... is 1 is false, because of rounding. But then... What is 1/3? Is 1/3 a nonexistent number? I might need to make another thread for this.
Vice versa for me. A lot of people who use the metric system love to get pissy with those who use the imperial system like me.When people expect me to just understand imperial measurements.
I use the metric system, and even from that I hardly understand what the numbers mean in non-text form.
Oh god, looking back, I was so dumb. I apologize for my extreme stupidity, especially for the conclusion that "Than is 1 also 1.111111" - I even used Than instead of Then.Wait... what? How have these conclusions been made? "0.999... = 1 => 1 = 1.111..." step is beyond all understanding.
Number properties have nothing to do with their ability to be represented as finite decimal fraction. In fact means of representing infinite periodic fractions exist: one of them is where infinitely repeating part of fraction is enclosed in parentheses like this: 0.(3); 0.0(142857) which stand for 1/3 and 1/70 respectively (other notations exist but I will use this one here as it is less likely to screw things up). If one decides to change base of numeral system to 3, they may end up with completely opposite conclusions as 0.5 (base 10) cannot be represented as finite fraction in base 3 system while 1/3 can be:
0.5₁₀ = 0.111111...₃ = 0.(1)₃
1/3₁₀ = 0.333333...₁₀ = 0.(3)₁₀ = 0.1₃
Rounding is an operation and is unrelated to all of this as well.
