Re: It is a very bad idea and nothing less than stupid to define 1/3 = 0.333...

[3 divided into 1] scaled to [3 divided into 10]:
10  3 = 7, sum of counts of 1 7  3 = 4, sum of counts of 2 4  3 = 1, sum of counts of 3 1  3 < 0, remainder of 1
Result of 3 + 1/3
Then [3 divided into 10] scaled to [3 divided into 1]:
Result of 3 + 1/3 divided by 10 = 3/10 + 1/30 .
