Yes bird brain John Gabriel, sure "S=Lim S", because the missig of one ellipse? Thats very interesting.
Your blunder is that you don't write, since the form has a parameter n, it stands for a multitude of expressions:
S(n) = 0.3+0.03+...+ 3/10^n
You can only take the limit of the above form. The below form is already a limit:
S = 0.3+0.03+...+ 3/10^n + ...
So what we have is:
S = lim n>oo S(n)
Its very interesting how a mature human being can make a fool out of himself, year after year, even
more idiotic than this banana, maybe see a doctor?
