 Pro Round 1: AcceptanceRound 2: Opening ArgumentRound 3: Rebuttal and ConclusionJust a fun fact debate. I wish my opponent best of luck trying to mathematically prove otherwise. 0.9 repeating is equal 1.Report this Argument Con 1 is something, 0 is nothing, you cant have 0,9999 sodas in your handReport this Argument Pro My proof is simple.1/3=.3333333...(3)(1/3)=1(.33333333...)(3)=.99999999....99999999...=1Therefore, .99999... is just another way to say "1."Good luck opponent! Report this Argument Con 0,999999..=0,999999.. 1=1 1 soda in my hand, is not 0,99999... soda in handReport this Argument Pro You have failed to show mathematical proof for said claim. I will tell you that .9 repeating is just another way of saying 1 again. If you have one soda in your hand, you do have .99999999... at the same time. It's a slightly more complicated way of saying it, but it is true. If I could see some proof for your math I could have had a better rebuttal.Report this Argument Con 1=1 is the proof.. true is simple and lies are complicated to say i have 0,9999 soda in my hand is simply false a soda is 1Report this Argument

I suppose using the squeeze theorem is another proof for said claim.

its something that is hiddden on purpose... on the one dollar bill you see a pyamid with an eye, the numer 1, and a bird that can fly, abc 123

A=all that can possibly be experienced
B=wings that can fly, bug being bat butterfly bird
C=is to be seeing with the third eye, my ability to see, or like my glasses is like a C is use to see through
E=Enegy=positive negative and balance
O=information

1=everything
0=nothing

A=future past and now=all seeing eye pyramid capstone reflection flying at the top of a pyramid

future=(is)false=supernature
now=true=nature=know=
past=truth=machine=knowledge=memory of know=

Well, everyone except the obvious super genius vi_spex, who is far too intelligent for the rest of us humans to comprehend.

no thats where they go wrong

most educated people think 1+0=1

There we go. YassineB with some first-year calculus. More people really need to get a basic education.
