similar properties, not 'the same' propertiesOriginally Posted byRenk

although, in another sense, 'the same' may apply as well: both appear in the mind as a result of thinking, therefore they necessarily have to share the same properties as all other things that appear that way

the solution of this equation is d=09*d=0

that means d=0, it does not mean d=0.0...1 or any other number

your calculation is erroneous, as already shown on several occasions - calculation rules did not fail hereMy argument only relies on some basic calculation rules, nothing more. If it is false, then at least one of these basic calculation rules fails in case of infinite sequences...

no, the part is still smaller than the whole, but nevertheless still infinitein infinite case the part may be "as big" as the whole.

it may be easier to think of them as 'countless': there are countless numbers between 0 and 1, but there are twice as much between 0 and 2

why complicate things further, when i already gave the correct value in the most simple way:I have an other argument to try to convince you that 0.99999....=1

1 - 0.999... = 0.0...1

or written more elegantly:

1 - 0.9... = 0.0...1
