0.9r

It has been mathematically proven.

(by the way I was of the opinion it didn't but I went through the maths and it actually does!)

OK, just to clarify the question a bit:

Does 0.9r = 1 in the same sense that 2+2 = 4 etc.

This has been gone through in the previous thread. Would you really like me to copy/paste the posts, rekindle the argument and take us all back to square 1?

It is not 1, but in reality it is as good as. There is an unmeasurable difference. The difference is infinatly small.

Our Maths A2 Teacher went into for about 2 hours during a double lesson a few weeks back. He proved in about 4 different ways that it does actually equal 1. He has two Masters degrees - im not gonna argue with him tbh.

Naturally i can't remember any of the proofs he actually used but...

I Vote it does.

0.999r isnt 1, 1 is 1.
