Anthems and Protests ---
While we certainly understand the frustration by fans on all sides of the discussion, we have decided to keep the Broncos Country message boards separate from politics. Recent events have brought the NFL to the forefront of political debates, but due to the highly emotional and passionate discussion it tends to involve, we think it’s best to continue to keep politics and this forum separate. Yes, the forum is meant for discussion, but we’d like to keep that discussion to football as much as possible.
With everything going on in our country, it would be nice to keep our complaints and cheers purely related to football here. If you feel passionately, there are plenty of other outlets available to you to express your opinions. We know this isn’t the most popular decision, but we ask that you respect it.
Thank you for understanding.

Basically inverse infinity. Or in other words you keep approaching 0, but never quite get there.

It was said that .999 is not an integer, and from elementary school to this day I have been taught that an integer is ANY number that can be plotted on a number line. Since .999 can be plotted on a number line it is an intger, it is just not a whole integer. Whole integer being 1,2,3,4,etc.

All you nooby dooby doos need to stop making stupid threads.:coffee:

.999.. can only be ploted on a number line if you assume that .999...=1.

"Integers consist of the positive natural numbers (1, 2, 3, …), their negatives (−1, −2, −3, ...) and the number zero."

.999... is not a natural number, and not an integer.

the only reason one can claim equality is because of a flaw in our number system. the real argument is not mathematical, but philosophical in that one must decide if teh infinitley small difference between .999... and 1 is a difference at all. DOES SOMETHING THAT IS INFINITLEY SMALL STILL EXIST?

anyone who says anyone else is wrong is wrong because either side has a legit case, and it's a matter of viewpoint and personal belief.

We all Miss you D-Will and Damien. RIP Broncos forever. :salute:

.999.. can only be ploted on a number line if you assume that .999...=1.

"Integers consist of the positive natural numbers (1, 2, 3, …), their negatives (?1, ?2, ?3, ...) and the number zero."

.999... is not a natural number, and not an integer.

I am just going by waht I have been taught my whole life, and my whole life I have been taught that .999 would be able to be plotted on a number line because it is a real number. Natural or not, it is a real number, and all real numbers are integers. But I agree with your last statement because we are all right in one way or another, and more than likely will not sway the other side to believe what we say.

Since you can't divide any number by 0. Zero is not in the domain of 1/x. So x can come as close to 0 as it wants, but it can never get there.

"Some people in this world make things happen, some people in this world know what happened, but most people wonder what happened."

I only said that 0 was the only integer that couldn't be written with a .9r at the end, although I can see now that the way I phrased it was ambiguous.

Doggcow, if x = .9r, then subtracting x and subtracting .9r is definitionally the same thing. That's what equality means.

Oh...

My bad.

What about .9r/infinity?

Thanks, Reid! sigpic

Do you have much experience with limits or series?

I am not asking to insult you or suggest that you don't understand. But if you have not then I would strongly recommend taking a couple calculus courses at your local collage. I think it would be right up your alley. It would provide ample opportunity to work with the infinitesimal and the infinite. It is some of the most challenging (both technically and conceptually) yet rewarding mathematics available to the undergraduate.
