 Pro I will make my argument once the challenge has been accepted.Report this Argument Con accepted, i have 1 soda in my handReport this Argument Pro I would first like to state that this is my maths assignment, so if my math is not 100% legitimate I apologise in advance.So first and foremost:Let x = 0.99...x = 0.9 + 0.0999...10x = 9 + 0.999...As previously established 0.999... = xSo 10x = 9 + xTherefore 9x = 9 i.e. x = 1 and x = 0.999...Thereby proving that 1 and 0.9r are one and the same.Report this Argument Con 0,99=false you cant have 0,99 rock in your hand, then it would be 0,00001 percent false. false dosnt exist in realityReport this Argument Pro Dex_te forfeited this round. Con yeeeeeaReport this Argument Pro Dex_te forfeited this round. Con zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzReport this Argument Pro Dex_te forfeited this round. Con ...yeeea...Report this Argument

I love how Pro forfeited the rest of the debate as soon as Con made his opening arguments, yet Con is still losing XD

# Roguetech - Pro shows that 0.99r is another way of writing 1. However this is irrelevant. The title of the debate is "Is 0.99 the same as 1?"

Vi-Spex seems to suggests that 0.99 is a fraction, and 1 is a whole number. It's not perfectly clear from his argument, he switches to rock, but it's more convincing than no argument

You can't have 0.99 sodas in your hand. But you can have 1 soda in your hand.

anything you can have in your hand, is at least 1

Really? I thought it was 0.99? You and mostlogical need to get your story straight. Maybe they can explain to you what you meant again.

0,99999 = 0,99999
0.99 = 0.99
1 = 0.99r
