and you have no idea what you're talking about andhave no clue as to
the meaning of the symbol 0,.999...
It is a symbol which represents an "ifinite series", which bt
definition is a sequence.
What 0.999... = 1 says is that the sequence converges to the number
represented by the numeral "1".
If you knew a little math that would all make semnse to you!
