Math hates me. The feeling is mutual.
It’s true! See http://www.faqs.org/faqs/sci-math-faq/specialnumbers/0.999eq1/ for example.
It’s all geek to me.
I’m an English major. You do the math.
Roundin’ upTry that at lightspeed…
The problem is that 1/9 does not equal .111… No matter how many 1s you string out, the decimal number will always be slightly less than 1/9. When you multiply .111… by 9, you get .999… 1/9 can not be expressed as an exact decimal number, so there will always be a rounding error.
