Argument (A) Infinite 0.9 = 1 Argument (B) its impossible for Infinite 0.9 to ever Equal 1 NOW LETS GIVE A PROOF SCORE VALUE FOR THE ARGUMENTS PUT FORWARD SO FAR! --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Argument (A) Infinite 0.9 = 1 because it does? Evidence put forward = 0.9999999999999........(no calculations ever shown by anyone! as to what happens next)......999999...(and then 1)? Proof score value = 0 --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Argument (B) Infinite 0.9 will never = 1 because its an Infinite number! Evidence put forward = 1 - (Infinite 0.9 stage one) = 0.1 This difference in the value of Infinite 0.9 and 1 never goes away! no matter how long the Example! or the stage Infinite 0.9 is at! So we start with a 100% proof calculation! showing the difference between the two numbers! and because we can always show this difference we end up with! Proof score value = 99% Everyone may now say why 99% and not 100% the reason for this is no one can prove the end of Infinity! But that's not what I am trying to do! as long as I can prove Infinite 0.9 is 99% of the time smaller than 1 it is far more Evidence than Argument (A). A.R.B
