Hey mathfags, if math is based in reality then why is 1/3=0.3333333.... but 0.3333333.... *3 only 0.9999999....? Math is built on fallacy and falsehoods.

1 and .9999999... are basically equal as there is no number that can exist such that it is >.999999... and < 1. Numbers are an abstract concept.
