whoever said tis is x-0.9999 cl...is this from MIT?<br /><br />whoever said tis is x-0.9999 close to being called an idiot (in math terms of course)<br /><br />this runs along the lines of zeno's paradox<br /><br />show me infinity and I'll show you where this is true<br /><br />we say 0.999... "tends" to one and it could reach 1 if we had infinite number of tries but where is infinite?<br /><br />your proof starts with the consequence<br />when we say pi=3.14... we don't mean that pi is equal to that number we mean that that number is symbolized by pi<br /><br />we don't know that number we don't have that number<br />aristogeithttp://iksigma.blospot.comnoreply@blogger.com
