 Amarth 13 years ago I'm also unfamiliar with the notation, but it looks okay. Basically, 5/9 = 0.555..., and 123/999 = 0.123123123...The argument in the other way is indeed as you say:X = 0.555...10X = 5.555...9x = 5X = 5/9And thus indeed, 0.999... = 1.Also note that 0.999... = 1 = 1.000... Three different ways to write down the same number. It's just the way the decimal system works. # quote
 E_net4 13 years ago I should keep these things in mind to scare my schoolmates. They know about Maths as much as a cricket. # quote

 Narvius 13 years ago Well, maybe his schoolmates *do* know it but can't explain it, as well? # quote
 Murska 13 years ago "Cheater" said:Well, maybe his schoolmates *do* know it but can't explain it, as well?I'm sure they, at least most of them, do have a way to communicate with people. Hopefully. Anyway, the point was about knowledge on maths, and I guess it's possible that they know a lot about it but just haven't ever shown it. # quote

They hate maths and they don't like talking about it. As in, they don't feel like talking about Maths as much as crickets. # quote
 Amarth 13 years ago I think trying to impress them with your mathematical knowledge might slightly backfire.[evil]Do try it, though.[/evil] # quote

I've never seen crickets talk about maths much, so I'm guessing if they talk about maths less than crickets do, they REALLY don't like talking about maths. # quote
 Narvius 13 years ago As a little back to topic:I found another explanation of the stuff I wrote above.For example 0,(123) * 999 = 123, simply because 0,(123) = 123 / 999. # quote
 MageKing17 13 years ago Took you that long to realize, eh? # quote
 Narvius 13 years ago ...uh, yes.The simpliest ways are usually avoided by me ^.^ # quote
 Idiota 13 years ago 123/999*999 hmm.... wonder what's the answer to that one.I'm back btw for those that have missed me the past month. # quote
 Amarth 13 years ago Finally. Clean up the spam in Notrium modding, would you kindly? It's only there for half a year. # quote
 Idiota 13 years ago Sometimes spam has it's uses, like now. Anyway. I've been slacking when it comes to any forum other than general talk, assuming that the other mods would take care of the problems in the forums generally seen as more on-topic. But I've seen the light and I'll expand my 'reign' to other territories. # quote
 MageKing17 13 years ago Then get rid of this topic, would you?Also, we miss you in IRC. # quote
 Idiota 13 years ago Heh? Really thought I deleted that topic... :/ Anyhow, I know I'm not on IRC much these days, and it's taken me some time to reach this conclusion, but I honestly can't be arsed to log in to IRC these days because I'm not using my (brand new) laptop as much as I used my PC before it died. I can log in and idle if you want but well, I kinda think it's better is you select someone to give the scepter to. # quote

We can leave it at that, I suppose.We'll kinda miss you, though. # quote

 Idiota 13 years ago Yes, well, this is just the result of a process that started a long time ago. Having less fun behind the computer and more fun doing other stuff. Stil, feels good to sometimes retreat from the world of stupidity and shelter with you guys. :p # quote

We're still a long time away from Cormoon to be released, and thus for the forums/IRC to flourish. # quote
