We've had lots of threads on exactly the same subject: whether 0.999... = 1. The most common misconceptions in threads of this nature are a flawed understanding of what it means mathematically for a sequence of numbers to converge, as well as a misunderstanding about how a limit is defined mathematically.I've had HW threads I've posted runaway like this with lots of experts arguing the "finer points" of the proof/problem and I did not find it very helpful as the student.
