You can only calculate an arithmetic mean between well formed numbers you moron! 0.999... is NOT a number of any kind. It represents a SERIES. If you define it stupidly as Euler did to be equal to its limit, then you are taking the mean of 1 and 1. There is nothing to do you HUGE APE!!!! > > Grow a brain.

0.999... is a short hand for an infinite sum which we define as the limit of a finite sum as the number of terms approaches infinity.

It indeed does. Or how do you define 0.(9)?
