.999_=1, so does 1=2?

This is how .999_ = 1

 

x = .999_

10x = 9.999_

10x - x = (9.999_ - .999_)

9x = 9

x = 1

 

.999_ = 1

 

To further prove this, look at 3/3. .333_ = 1/3, and 3/3 = 1. Therefore, .999 = 1.

 

 

Now, it can be argued that 1=2.

 

0 x 1 = 0

0 x 2 = 0

 

So than this must be true:

0 x 1 = 0 x 2

 

Similarly:

0/0 x 1 = 0/0 x 2

 

Simplified,

1 = 2

Multiplying by zero is a no no in logic, and the first one is a mistake of significant decimals.

You can't divide by 0

 

0/0 = 0

 

Let me break this down for you.

 

If you distribute 0 objects to 0 people, than you are distributing 0 objects, so no objects are being distributed ('objects', representing the numerator)

Therefore, 0/0 = 0

 

The same cannot be said when you divide a number >1 or

Not the brightest crayon in the box are ya?

 

x = .999

10x = 9.99 (get a calculator if you don't believe me)

10x - x = 9.99 - .999

9x = 8.991

x = .999

Right back where we started, not 1.

 

0 x 1 = 0

0 x 2 = 0

and

0 x 2349048579875948545 = 0 also

 

So 1 = 2 = 2349048579875948545?

 

More like 0 = 0.

 

LoL ohhh kids these days...

Well you just disproved your own little formula, 0/0 simplified would be 0 not one, thus the equation would end up 0=0 which is true :thu:

Not .999, .999_ as in .9 repeating i.e. .999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999 etc to infinity

Then again, it can be said that 0/0 = 1, because anything divided by itself is one.

 

Aside from the point; I have found myself in a mathematical quandry, a hole which I am having a hard time digging myself out of.

 

Before I make myself look like anymore of a dumb ass, I just want to let you guys know that if you are not an open minded person to alternative ways of thinking, than you are free to ignore all that I say. I am simply making observations.
