balonie, you are only complaining about the three dots or periods " ... " indicating repeating in that fashion, so get over it...

it is short hand for one, the "..." mean repeated, usally one uses a bar over the last repeated numbers, but cant do that with text.

yes and you are fussing over notation convention, meaning you are unfamiliar with math(s)

why ? where did they go ? if they were infinite, they would fill up your room...

you seem confused by standard math notation here. Irrationals no one has seen the end.

that is what you say, but study up on common math notation first.
