Why 0.999… Does Not Equal 1.

Several months back I was perusing my favorite forum when someone posted the fanciful notion that 0.999… (repeating to infinity) equals 1.  As I proceeded to destroy this silly notion point by point I discovered that this concept is widely accepted as true.

I did my best Barney Stinson in a Superman Pose and said, “Challenge Accepted!”

Here is the paper I’ve written that highlights nine different proofs about why 0.999 =/= 1.

It is a small PDF document that I will add to as I get more proofs why 0.999… =/= 1.

 

Also I’d like to apologize for the lack of content on this blog.  I’ve been working on these proofs for a while.  The proof #9 had me hung up for 2 weeks.  If it hadn’t popped into my head late, late at night as I was trying to get to bed I’m not sure if I would have ever figured it out.
