i accept that .99 repeating equals 1. I read a lot of posts as why it is true and I accept them. ii had a discussion with some people about this and their response is there must be a difference. the basic reason is based on what happens when you divide 1 by 3. they claim 1/3 dose not equal .33 repeating, that even if u go out to infinity there was always be something left over, and with any repeating decimal there will always be something left over . I am not sure how to respond. Part of the problem is they never went that far into math(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
