Just say you shoot an arrow at a target. When it travels to its target, it has to go half way, then half of rest of the way, then half of the rest of the way, then half of the rest of the way... and so on, forever. This formula shows that the arrow will never be able to get to the target, which is why 1=0.9999...


If this is true then that gaurd in Skyrim is lying about taking an arrow in the knee. :(

That was a really dumb question.

Here is an actually simple question that is more complicated than it looks:

6÷2(1+2) = ?
