But that isTach said:But this is not what you write, you write the nonsense:

How can a sane person write 0.009 as 0.9? They are two DIFFERENT numbers.arfa brane

We just write numbers like 0.009 as 0.9, because it's: "0.009 multplied by 100".

**not**what I posted, it's an edited version. Edited by you to support

**your**insanity.

You must be insane because you can't see that the zero of a repeating decimal is the same as a string of infinite zeros (my point, the same point as others such as Trippy have made, and one you eventually agreed is trivially true)

**but**the zeros that extend to the right after division are not an infinite string.

You refuse to accept that I was referring to this zero, and how it must extend to the left, since 0.999... = 00.999... = (any number of leading zeros up to infinity).999... and keep beating the already dead and buried horse.

You like to see mistakes that aren't there because you're insane.
