Hey guys I just though it would share the mysteries of .9 being solved. .9 repeating, like every repeating decimal, is actually a geometric series, and since it gets smaller with everyvterm, it's sum can be found...
There is so much evidence as to why .9...=1, it's not even funny. But people like me will continue to believe otherwise just because we simply refuse to accept it.
The thing is it actually makes sense! Every 9 down the line brings you closer to 1.
EXPERIMENT TIME! Take a regular piece of paper. Cut it in half, and place one half down. Now take the remaining half, and cut that in half, and set it down. (Now you have a fourth). So just keep cutting the piece in half, setting it down, and then cutting the remaining piece in half. Every time it gets closer to one, and done to infinity, equals one. The equation, the same one from my video, has the starting term of .5, and a rate of .5. The equation for the sum is (n)/(1-r) which is .5/.5, which is one.
It really isn't a trick like 4+5 is 25 or something like that. It is just solid math.

I always wanted to argue with a brick wall, I suppose the internet is the second best option.
