this is a stupid math joke that bothers me greatly but...

1/3 = 0.333333~

0.33333~*3 = 0.99999~

1/3*3 = 3/3 = 1

therefore 1 = 0.9999

it is merely a rounding error that just about every mathematician is aware of and any GOOD mathematician will not encounter because you should never solve a fraction unless you require a decimal final answer (such as currency) or to square root.
