0.999… == 1

Did you know?

 
 
    1
    - x 3 = 1
    3
 
 
    1      
    - = 0.333...
    3 
 
 
    0.333... x 3 = 0.999...
 
 
    ...then...
 
 
    0.999... = 1
 
 

Are you searching for the trick? Believe it or not, this demonstration is true.

Maybe the old intel pentiums were right...

    Seriously? Have you skipped all the Calculus lessons? It’s like the first thing you learn about the real numbers, each finitely representable one has a dual representation.
