GeorgeBush (11/18/2012) [] That still doesn't mean that in the end .999... doesn't = 1, because it does. I can't explain it as well as my teacher could, but it's basic mathematic theory that they, and all other infinitely repeating integers with .999... equals the same number rounded up. 46.999... = 47, etc #166

GeorgeBush (11/18/2012) [] She didn't change what x equaled, she changed the equation x was used in. In math you always do to one side of the equation what you do to the other, as I'm sure you know. She simply multiplied the starting equation by 10 on each side. (1) x = .999... multiplied by 10 is 10x = 9.999... , the value of x did not change. If you then divide the equation 10x = 9.999... (in which you claim x no longer equals .999...) by 10 you get (1) x = .999... again, meaning that in the two equations x remains constant. #164 
Doominabox (11/18/2012) [] the eqation wrote should have said either 9=10x.9.. or 9x=9x just because it was writen like that, doesn't mean its true X=5 50X=50 (times it by 10) 49X=49 (i subtracted one from each side) X=1 (divided by 49) and presto 5=1 #165

#160 
GeorgeBush (11/18/2012) [] No, she did nothing wrong. Every step of the equation had the same process done unto both sides. Subtracting x and subtracting .999... is the same processes, using the same amount, meaning that it is a perfectly valid. They said x = .999... meaning subtracting .999.... and subtracting x makes no difference as they are the same number. The reason they subtracted x on one side and .999... on one side is because one side (left) already had x as a variable, and the right side did not. #161 
Doominabox (11/18/2012) [] what you're not getting is that x≠.99999.... because she changed it after the first step you would not subtract x from the other side the actual equation would be 9=10x.99999.... wich is not the same as 9=9x #163
