But it is enough to to consider the following sequence

to see that it has the (improper) limit
(((?((((((10^0)/10)+10^1)/10)+10^2)/10)+? )+10^n)/10)+?
infinite.
.
And it is as easy to see that in set theory the set of indices left of
the decimal point

has limit { }.

And it is further easy to know, that decimal fractions as conceived by
Simon Stevinus cannot contain numerals without indices, even if no one
does see them because they were not explicitly written.
