Alright thanks.

It doesn't need to an infinite series it simply requires a single divergence for example

1....,.10133948406759694768675948 + 1 =2,...n,n+1 any divergence anywhere counts.
This is the mathematical exactness anything that varies in its input-output mappings from a function F is not performing that function but some other function.

2) Its my lawnmower is a view of function which does not concern itself so much with what a function
is but refers to a function or utility. This notion is of a physical rather than an abstract object, as a physical object an object might be assigned a function on the basis that it is good at it. For example I might have a calculator which I fund fits my bill, after years of use however it ceases to fit the bill it makes the odd mistake say particularly say when I hold it casing. I could them say it is still a reasonable calculator even though it deviates from addition in several cases. But if I claim that it is still a calculator I am saying that it performs a function that it does not compute since I can say that the function it is computing is not addition. But if I make out that something is trying to perform a function that it does not compute what sense does it make to refer to function at all.
Ascriptions or non-ascriptions of function become useless if we make out that something can both follow a rule and not accord with it.

Just to make sure I understand your argument, could you check my summary? I don't want to straw man it.

Resolution: The world doesn't function perfectly with everything functioning according to its function because...
Argument 1: An infinite string of decimals will never be fully computed
Argument 2: A thing can't be described by its purpose
