i can prove that 1 is equal to .99999999999999999-> 0.o
• ##### RainThinker
Or you can argue that 0.99999.. with an infinite amount of nines is equal to 1, because as the 9's reach an infinite amount, the difference between it and 1 becomes so insignificant, it ceases to exist.
so 0.9 repeating is equal to 1.
:D

Let 0.999... equal x
x=0.999...
Multiply by ten.
10x=9.999...
Subtract x from both sides.
9x=9
Divide by 9.
x=1
Therefore, 1=0.999...

Alternate solution:

1-0.000...1=0.999...
But 0.000...1 doesn’t exist!
Therefore, 0.000...1 must be equal to no value!
Subtract no value from 1.
1-no value=1
Therefore, 0.999... is equal to 1.

Going further...

If 0.000...1 doesn’t exis...

If 0.000...1 doesn’t exist, then no value must not exist (or all values exist.)
But if no value does not exist, and infinity is equal to no value, what’s to become of infinity?
0.999... has an infinite number of digits, but infinity doesn’t exist!
This means that 0.999... and therefore, 1, must not exist!
Since the problem does not exist (on account of 0.999... and 1 not existing), I am wasting my time typing this.
