ok ok ok

ok...here's a little thought experiment.

here are two numbers

10 and 9.999 repeating forever...let's just call it 9.99, but remember that it goes on

are these different numbers?
clearly they are...let's prove that.

let's call 9.99=X
10X=99.99

now....

99.999forever=10X
- 9.99forever=X
------------------
90=9X
divide both sides by 9 and we get
X=10

ok you math people, have fun!
