I was hoping you would have used zeno. approximations in my opinion would be weak. But If we walk away learning something, we are better for the experience.

For the record, I still could have argued this, bit after the research I no longer felt the confidence in my arguments. I still could argue Zeno's paradox and approximations.

@WilliamP where were my spelling mistakes? I've been trying to improve on S+G so any help would be great.

@ n7, I have no intention of debating semantics. I will debate this mathematically and logically.

Repeating in the title is notation not a number. Notations are for understanding not calculation. Math problems can have 2 parts Syntactic, which is the numbers and operators. And is can have the Semantic, which is words and symbols to describe the numbers.

Pro didn't put "no semantics". Con could win this by saying "repeating" isn't a valid number. So .9999 repeating doesn't equal anything.
