1 is equal to .999999999....


Recommended Posts

1/3 = .33333333

2/3 = .66666666

then this must be true ( add up both sides )

3/3= .999999999

or in other words



It makes total sense; it's obvious.

1/3 +2/3 = 3/3 = 1

You have 3 inside a case, which can fit 3 objects/people/things. Perfect match. 100%. NO doubt about it. :P

That's like saying if you divide the distance by half with every step, you will never get there.

it actually isn't, because what you said is correct (the gap to the target gets infinitesimally small, but it never reaches 0. What the first user posted just isn't true...
