If the sequence ends, it isn't equal to 1.

But that's wrong you fucking idiot.

0.1 = 10^-1
0.01 = 10^-2
0.001 = 10^-3
:
0.0...1 = 10^-inf =0

anything after '...' is zero

Then why is there a 1 after the ...?

why not?

Because if you know how the sequence ends, it's not infinite.

we don't know, so what?

To understand what's happening to the numbers after the decimal when you multiply the number by 10, suppose it was 0.99 instead.

x=0.99
10x=9.9 <--- That's 9.90, not 9.99

Even though both 9.999... and 0.999... stretch to infinity, the numbers after the decimal in 9.999... are still smaller because there are different orders of infinity.

The irrational numbers between integers are a higher order of infinity than the integers themselves, for example.

But that is wrong.

They're all correct retard.
