Its a fact that 0.999... = 1
Not going to prove it now, but you can learn more here:


>> No.9465792

This is the millionth time we've had this thread, and you're probably a troll, but just in case.
Ask yourself what exactly a decimal expansion should mean. If I write 0.374, that means 3/10 + 7/100 + 4/1000 right? For infinite decimal expansion, I need to do an infinite sum. For example, 1/3 is 0.333... because the following equation is true,
[math]\sum_{n=1}^\infty \frac{3}{10^n} = \frac{1}{3}[/math]
This is the sort of thing you learn when you do calculus. So now that we have a sensible definition for a decimal expansion, we can easily prove, with calculus, that 0.999... is 1. It's just because we have the following equality
\sum_{n=1}^\infty \frac{9}{10^n} = 1

If you want 0.999... to be something else, you'll need to give me a different definition of what a decimal expansion is supposed to be that makes it work. If you want 0.999... to be "infinitely close to 1, but not equal to 1", that won't work in the real numbers, because you can find a real number between any two distinct numbers. So you would need to change a natural definition and leave the real numbers to make it work. It's not really something that makes sense to do.

>> No.9466095

But OP is saying it's a bug. Not that the math doesn't work out.

We all understand that the math checks out. What we're saying is that it's incorrect despite the correct math.

That just because the math is true doesn't mean it actually is.

Sorry man, 1 and 0.99999... are different numbers. They are literally different numbers. One of them has a 1 before the decimal. The other only has value after the decimal -- no matter how infinite the expansion is, you cannot cross that unless another value is added to it.

This problem has nothing to do with the math. We get the math. The math checks out.

>> No.9466130

This is a problem that is beyond math, man. Some things just aren't actually explained by math even when it works out.

This simple 1 = .999... problem is also a metaphor for how myopic you people can be. Even when the math works, it doesn't really work in the real world.

Repeating decimals betray math because they aren't written sensibly. Repeating decimals implies A, B, C and D.1~infinity would each read as 0.999..., yet we can prove these are all unequal values infinitely many times for infinite tests of n and k.

[math]0.\bar{9}[/math] has no intelligible meaning as written and is missing information. It's like trying to identify the difference between 8 and 9 by only judging the upper half of their symbols. All we see is o . 8 < 9 but o = o

I'll prove it with a simple geometric series. So you have a series that goes 9/10+9/100+9/1000... this is equal to 9(1/10)+9(1/10)^2+9(1/10)^3+...
Now comes the formula a/1-r our a=9/10 and our r=1/10 so we get (9(1/10)/(1-1/10))= 9/10*10/9=1 now stop making this retarded post.

1 = 0.9 + 1/10

Because if what you say is true, and it makes a lot of sense, then what most of calculus is based on (that really small positive number that's smaller than any other positive number, I think it might be different from an infinitesimal) wouldn't exist.

No, calculus is actually incorrect and needs to be reformed, as math in general does not provide enough information in a repeating decimal, which was proven by the post.

>m-muh limits
use a finite number limit or fuck off cause you don't actually understand the definition of infinity. You literally don't need to understand it either, ya just need to fuck off.

>> No.9468845

Clarifying, Equality in terms of real numbers means that they are the _same_ number, in our case, that means they have the same dedekind cut representation
[math]1 = \{x\in\mathbb{Q}: x < 1\}[/math]
[math]0.\overline{9} = \bigcup_{i=0}\{x\in\mathbb: x<1-10^{-i}\} [/math]

It should be easy to see that both sets are one and the same.
Every number less than 1 is less than 1 minus some negative power of 10,
Similarly, if a rational is in the cut representing 0.99... then
[math]\exists i\geq 0: x< 1-10^{-i} < 1[/math]

So we have
[math]x\in 1 \Leftrightarrow x \in 0.\overline{9}[/math]
They ARE the same set for fucks sake.

I'm not saying you're wrong, but let me tell you my opinion: There is another way to construct IR from IQ through equivalence classes of limits of cauchy series. I like it more, I think it is more precise. Instead of "the same", "is in the same equivalence class" suffices. It is immediately clear, that the completion depends on the metric and it already is a foundation for doing analysis in the constructed completion of IQ.

>> No.9468917

Lets just slow it down to matrix mode so you can follow each step, step by step
Lets just start with two sums.
[math]A: \sum_{n=1}^{\infty} \frac{1}{2^n} | B: \sum_{n=1}^{\infty} \frac{9}{10^n}[/math]
Got it?
For ANY and EVERY test of n passed to both A and B, even an INFINITE amount of unique tests performed, the partial sums of B will ALWAYS be greater than the partial sums of A.

A and B absolutely under no circumstances equal the same value.

If you think they do equal the same value, you are literally retarded and just need to fuck off because you don't understand the definition of infinity and you've been more than capable of getting this far in life without understanding it, so whether you understand it or not is not even a valid response. Disagreement with this is just benign retardation cause it implies you are agreeing with some other definition, yet you do not understand and cannot invoke that definition.

B can evaluate to 1 by rounding at any decimal place. We can do one iteration of 9/10^n, get 0.9, and with the second iteration get 0.99 where the hundredths 9 will round up -> 0.9 + 0.1 = 1

For A, it is different. To get a number that rounds up on the hundredths, we must go through 1/2 + 1/4 + 1/8 + 1/16 + 1/32 = 0.96875. We can then take the 0.06 to round up 0.9 + 0.1 = 1.

It doesnt hold for every case before infinity. It holds for an infinite case of infinite tests, which is what setting the limit to infinity means. If it were capable of naturally summing 1 at any point, any extended infinite work would take that 1 and blow it up towards infinity. You can only get 1 by:
>doing finite work

and in such case, the decimal accuracy limit and the finite work limit would be parts of the answer itself, that it does not suffice to just say they both equal "1", but rather more like [math]A = 1_{n=5}^{d.=1} | B = 1_{n=2}^{d.=1}[/math], or more loosely as [math]A = 0.\bar{9}_{\frac{1}{2}} | B = 0.\bar{9}_{\frac{9}{10}}[/math] or even [math] A = 0.\bar{9}_{\underline{0.5}} | B = 0.\bar{9}_{\underline{0.9}}[/math] towards the efforts of not fucking up the working definition of infinity so we dont literally just say A = B like actual retards, so we don't say 2 = 1 like mongoloids.

In this case?
In any case the limit is treated as a natural number. Whether n is 1 to 100 or 1 to 100000 or 1 to infinity, the limit is a treated as natural. This is the first fuckup because infinity is not a number.
Treating it as a number in the equation of classical calculus to sum the results [math]A|B = 0.\bar{9}[/math] leads to another fuckup of redefining infinity. In the working sum cases, infinity meant do "a (presumably concatenated) infinite amount of work". In the answer repeating decimal case, infinity then means "an equivalent finite number" in [math]0.\bar{9}[/math]

Classical calculus abuses infinity like a whore without a pimp, constantly reassigning it any arbitrary definition that just so happens to produce the requested result and completely regardless to whether the current definition contradicts another definition so the definition of infinity in the equation is different than the definition of infinity extracted as a resulting sum from the very same equation.
It is fucking schizophrenic paradoxical bullshit. Infinity means uncountably large. If you wish to set a limit to infinity but still receive some kind of sensible result right now by instantiating hidden rules of decimal accuracy to produce a result like [math]0.\bar{9}[/math], where the overline says there is an uncountably large amount of 9's, we have to add the same concatenating feature of infinity used in the sums, because:
[math] x = 1\rightarrow\infty \sum_{n=1}^{\infty} \frac{x}{(x+1)^n} < \frac{(x+1)}{(x+2)^n}[/math] defines an infinite amount of unequal values that classical calculus claims they all equal [math]0.\bar{9} = 1[/math].

Calculus' use of infinity is a brainlet paradigm.

>> No.9469181

we ARE NOT using infinity, and why is a limit treated as natural number WAHT

what is A|B, A divides B? what is this notation

Limits are not about infinite processes, that is a naïve interpretation of calculus,

the thing is, 1/3 + 1/3 + 1/3 = 1 because of Algebra even if calculus was invalid!

Mathematicians do not need to use infinity for limits, because we have the fucking definition of limits namely the epsilon and delta def. and the equivalent for sequences >>9469082 def

Nowhere infinity and infinite checks appear, you only need the set of natural numbers which comes from an Axiom, the Axiom of the inductive set

>[math]\frac{1}{3} × 3 = 1[/math]
A valid statement even though what you were implying was
>[math]0.\bar{3} × 3 = 0.\bar{9} = 1[/math]
Which is absolutely not a valid statement
The classical problem needs reformation to actually evaluate as
[math]0.\bar{3}_{\frac{1}{3}} × 3 = 0.\bar{9}_{\frac{3}{3}} = 0.\bar{9}_{1} = 0.\bar{9}_{\stackrel{1}{\leftarrow}} = 1[/math] for logical arithmetic. And you're right, 1/3 + 1/3 + 1/3 has nothing to do with calculus but thats not the main issue. The main issue is classical representation of repeating decimals is inadequate.

No it isn't, it is perfectly usable. Your notation is overly complicated and unnecessary.

All numbers have a single non terminating decimal representation.

And they also have a finite fraction representation :^)

[math]\frac{9}{10^n}[/math] is the same as [math]\frac{\big[ 9 \big]...}{1 \big[ 0 \big]...} = \frac{99...}{100...} = \frac{999...}{1000...} = \frac{9999...}{10000...} ... [/math] and so on. To evaluate the decimal number [math]0.\bar{9}[/math] is to simultaneously evaluate the fraction [math]\frac{\bar{9}}{1\bar{0}}[/math], where any finite test of countability in the 9's and 0's, even after an infinite amount of finite tests, will always produce a number [math]\frac{x}{y}[/math] where x < y and thus not equal to 1.

I meant ALL numbers.
The only real problematic numbers are the terminating numbers, like 1, 1/2 etc, not 1/3, e, etc...

Because you can turn the decimal representation
x = [a_0,a_1,...a_k,0,0,0,0...], where k is the greatest k such that the further digits are all 0s
x = [a_0,a_1,...a_k-1,9,9,9,9...]

it is that simple
