6 ups, 5d,

Get a load of this:

0.99999999... is actually equal to 1.

10*0.9999999=9.9999999

9.999999-0.9999999=9

9/9=1

0.99999999... is actually equal to 1.

10*0.9999999=9.9999999

9.999999-0.9999999=9

9/9=1

You are right about it being 0.3333..., but in an infinite amount of decimals later, it will even out to be 1/3 exactly. And 1/3 * 3 is 1.

2 ups, 6d,

This is a fact, but somehow if you run it through a calculator 0.333333333333333 x 3 = 1?

1 up, 3d,

Yeah.

.999999999... has infinite amounts of nines, which means that the amount of distance between that and one is effectively nothing, no matter how many decimal places you go to. And hence, it's equal to 1

Not quite infinite, but the number you get has like at least 20 nines or something.

It's not that hard. A repeating decimal is kinda like pi. Except rather than there being a non-repeating string of numbers, you have one that repeats itself. So for example one ninth is 0.1111111, but that 1 repeats infinitely. There are also ones like 1.832323232 where the 3 and 2 repeat infinitely. So if you have 0.999999..., then that number is infinite zeroes and then a 1 away from becoming 1. And because of that, it's so infinitely close to 1 that in absolutely any circumstance ever in any practical calculation, from speed in a car to quantum physics, it can always be expressed as just 1.

This is how I feel when I gain knowledge, thank you for the knowledge, fellow human bean.

You sure did! It's always nice when you meet someone who is willing to share most likely useful knowledge.

not to ruin the meme or anything, but decimals can change a lot about multiplication and division...

actually, 1 divided by 3 does equal 0.33333333333 but that times 3 equals one. I used a calculator
