ok so we can write greatest number that is < 5(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

(`_

4.9 which means 4.9999999999999...

then.. what's the next highest number > 5?

`````````````````````````` _

5.000000000000000...1 or 5.01

can you do that? (put the "repeating" there ^^)

edit: didn't realize the spaces would be removed so my repeating signs were at the beginning, not to where i spaced them out to
