1. Put in "why .999=1 wiki"

It is a bad thing. I thought you were smart.

I thought you were smart.
You thought correctly

Here's what the video showed me

.999... = x
9.999... = 10x

Let's stop there for a second. If this is true, then 10*.999 should equal the other side. Let's see.

9.999... = 9.999...

Correct. Then the next step says to subtract .999... from each side. Let's do that.

9 = 9

Therefore

1 = 1

What are you trying to prove with this 1 = 1

3. Not a video, A wiki page. Get it through your head! Don't be arrogant.

Not sure if you're asking for an alternative explanation of the page/video/whatever, or asking a question to see how people respond...

5. You told me to find a video titled "why .999=1 wiki" so I searched for it. One of those videos does not exist so I did the next logical action and chose the first hit. It was the video that you wanted to show me. I'm only using logic. Clearly you are not.

6. I didn't say video. In search, put this EXACTLY. "Why 1 equals .999 cont" The second hit should be a wiki page. Click it.

My second hit was "Proof that 0.999... does not equal 1"

This is entertaining, keep going please

8. You are a liar. That's what you are. If you looked up the exact thing that I said on Google than the Wiki page sating that it is true is the second hit. Someone saying that it isn't is the third. So you lied or you are foolish.

Explain THAT

SCIENCE WORKS, and screenshots don't lie

Watch out for my photoshop mastery though

10. You made a mistake. I said equals, not =. The word equals.

11. My bad. I guess I should-

Put in "why .999=1 wiki"
Oh, never mind.

Problem?

12. Yeah that is what I put FIRST, but not the accurate one. This EXACTLY (Without the quotes) "Why 1 equals .999 cont" Do that on search. Please stop trolling me and do it. Please.

13. Now you're pleading that I look up your sources. Are you sure you understand this concept? If you understood the concept, then you should be able to prove your point by yourself. The ethos is not strong with this one.

Show me why you believe .999 = 1, otherwise I assume that you don't actually believe it and you're just trying to troll me. You terrible troll.

in math, i am sure mathematicians read the "=" as "equals", it is an equal sign after all

THEN FREAKEN USE MORE CALM MIND.
even though you might be a support, annoyer, tank, or physical sweeper
LOL.

I am sure back in 6th grade (if you just happen to not remember elementary)
the teachers state clearly the equal sign means equal

yeah, reading word problem "is" means the same thing as "="
and in computer science, "=" means "assign" or "becomes"
and only "==" means equals...

17. Gelatino you need to face facts. You were outsmarted ONCE. Only once. By a 12 year old, but that is beside the point.
