As in the 1st line of the “proof” says “Multiply 0.999999… by 10.”,the first number must be 10 times the second number (10x-x=9).

9.99-0.999=8.991 (0.999*10=9.99)

9.999-0.9999=8.9991 (0.9999*10=9.999)

So always is less than 9.

]]>9.99-.99 is 9.

9.999-.999 is 9.

At what point in this sequence is the result less than 9?

]]>9.99999999-0.999999999=8.999999991 (not 9)

It’s true that the solution for 10x-x=9 is 1

but 0.999999999 is not a solution for this eq. ]]>

And secondly, this is why I enjoy your blog, because you are doing an excellent job at putting some things into perspective for me that I would otherwise never think about. Maps. Hah!
