ITT containment for all topics that fall under the common "/sci/ bad threads" umbrella:

>poorly defined scientifically, go to >>>/his/
>doesn't actually measure anything besides aptitude for brainteasers by innumerate psychologists
.999... = 1
>it's true by definition, there are a million proofs
flat earth and/or NASA is CGI

i think i revolutionized physics and/or math so i post it here!

shit youtube says

if you choose to pull something out of your ass that goes on forever, or being endless, it may have the semblance of being infinite but it does have a starting point where one could say it does not exist, therefore NOT infinite.
as noted in this reply that starting point would be up your ass. if you need third grade visual aids think of a circle and a straight line, unless you assign some arbitrary starting point the circle could be said to be infinite, without beginning or end. the straight line, no matter how long, would have at least one end, therefore not infinite. all too often the word infinite is used improperly.

It's a shitty attempt at containing legitimate scientific questions. By trying to lump any issue related to IQ into this trash thread along with stupid shit, you deny the statistical results and predictive power of IQ testing and what this might say about the distribution of intellectual capability. If you really just want to contain /pol/tards, I won't object, but there are ways to discuss this shit and still ignore full on "send the blacks back to Africa" retards.

math is verbal, anon. if your IQ was higher, you would see it.

>> No.10324816

Any two real numbers A and B that are not equal have an average that is between A and B.
If .999... =/= 1, then average(.9999..., 1) would have to be closer to 1 than .999... So your statement about .999... being "the closest possible" to 1 is false. Therefore .999.... = 1.

Alternate proof:
1/3 = .333...
3*1/3 = 3*.333...
3/3 = .999...
1 = .999...

Justify this.

>Alternate proof:

>3/3 = .999...
>1 = .999...

How do you know that 0.333... REALLY equals 1/3? Maybe it's just a infinitely close approximation the works out close enough in practice. How could you rule this out given Newton used tools like this to establish calculus?


You can establish all of these things through appropriate definition of agreed axioms and analysis of course. But acting like these are all just obviously true facts about the number system you happen to have been using without establishing this is dishonest and a good reason as to why many people who don't know any better but otherwise have sound reasoning skills either stay away from mathematics or end up as cranks.

Unfortunately for denialtards, evidence is a stubborn thing so they have to resort to counter-signaling tactics like "go back to /x/." Climatology, AGW and climate change are all clearly science related, though it always turns a bit political when policy is brought up, usually by denialists trying to attack from every angle, not only scientific ones.

>> No.10327025

>always turns a bit political when policy is brought up
No one will admit it, but even hardline greens advocating for fighting climate change are selfish, we all just want to maintain our current quality of life, changing as little as possible, and most of all, making someone else do it, that's why it turns to policy. On /sci/ half of it is shitposting and half of it is people who legitimately don't believe in climate change, but in the real world it's

IQ tests aren't filled with "math". It's pattern matching and pattern recognition, which is a skill often used in math, but it's also the skill most often used in literally fucking everything you do in day to day life.

>> No.10328305

>Justify this.

Is the average <=.999...? That would suggest that average between two numbers "leans slightly" towards the smaller number. But the formula for the average (A+B)/2 treats A and B symmetrically.
Is the average >=1? That would suggest that average between two numbers "leans slightly" towards the larger number. But the formula for the average (A+B)/2 treats A and B symmetrically.

>How do you know that 0.333... REALLY equals 1/3?
Well, do you believe in proof by induction? If so, I hope I don't have to spell out for you how to do this.
