 P: 7 Here it is... 1/3= .33333333333........... 2/3= .6666666666......... so 3/3= .9999999999....... so 1= .999999999........ Wtf? I think that this "paradox" means that there is a problem with our definition of infinity. At least, the definition needs to be refined. Does this mean that 1 is not equal to one, or is .9999999... another name for one? I think this topic needs to be adressed.
 HW Helper P: 661 Oh no, I remember a long one discussing this. Something about convergence, but I'll sit back and watch :)
