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... = x

So 10x = 9 + x

Therefore 9x = 9

i.e. x = 1 and x = 0.999...

Thereby proving that 1 and 0.9r are one and the same.

0,99=false

you cant have 0,99 rock in your hand, then it would be 0,00001 percent false. false dosnt exist in reality

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.

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

Reasons for voting decision: Pro had a more convincing argument. They explained their premise, and Con's rebuttal was reasserting their premise and largely incomprehensible. Pro had better grammar. Con failed to have a single grammatically correct sentence. Also, as just a general note, Con a soda in their hand.
