why don't you answer to my criticism? How do you end up with S(?) = 1?
You have only shown how S(?) = 0.(9)
Do you just simply put 0.(9) = 1, but why? It is just because you say so?
In doing so, can you just put everything that you want to be equal to anything you want? Just because that's what you want.
