 Pro I am arguing that 0.999999999... (going on forever) is equal to 1. My opponent is arguing against it. First round is for acceptance.Report this Argument Con I acceptReport this Argument Pro There is a simple test to decide if two numbers are equal. If A=B then A-B=0 1 - 0.9999999.... = 0.00000000... The ... means repeating In other words if there is no difference between two numbers, they are the same number. Here is a second proof: 1/3 = 0.333333333... 0.3333333333... X 3 = 0.999999999... And 1/3 X 3 = 1 Therefore 0.9999999999... = 1Report this Argument Con yannikmarazia forfeited this round. Pro OkReport this Argument Con hey everyone bullying is badReport this Argument
