Since \sum_{k=1}^n 9/(10^k) = 1  10^(n), and \sum_{k=1}^oo a(k) = lim n>oo \sum_{k=1}^n a(k)
The two are synonymous:
lim n>oo (110^(n)) = \sum_{k=1}^{\infty} 9/(10^k)

BTW: The following authors here on sci.math already explained this two you like a dozen times:  Dan  Me  Markus Klyver  Zelos Malum  Etc..
You, bird brain John Gabriel, probably qualify for the most stupid human being on the planet.
Should we call the Guiness book of records?
