"the meaning of the symbol 0,.999... It is a symbol which represents an "ifinite series", which bt definition is a sequence"
the idea that
0,.999... = 1 is not in question -on this post what is the question is what does it MEAN fact is
what it means is fact is 0,.999... never ends fact is 1 does end
so 0,.999... = 1 means a number that does not end ie non-finite = a number that does end ie finite thus maths ends in contradiction
