big number... o.o

no its not, no matter how many digits you add to the end 4 is a bigger numberMel'Kaven wrote:big number... o.o

3.15 is a bigger number ^^.

Wow, I checked and doublechecked that calculus problem and there were no mistakes. Very nice mindduck.

Jwilson is right about it not being calculus. The fact that it is wrong is untrue. Every step is true. Using a few different mathematical properties, you can see that all steps are correct. I will go through each one.
Now, using a positive, a negative, and a nonpositive/negative number in this.
Actually, you know what? It is wrong. You cannot divide by zero as this would make the entirety of the statement untrue (or at least undefined/infinity). That is why it is wrong. Jwilson is right^^.
 1: Since a == b, then a*a = a*b.
 2: Since you are subtracting b^2 from both sides, this is correct.
 3: All that has happened is that they have been factored.
 4: Divide (ab) from both sides. This leaves (a+b) = b.
 5: Since a == b, then b == a so this works.
 6: a + a == 2a and a == a. This means that 2a == a.
Now, using a positive, a negative, and a nonpositive/negative number in this.
 Given: 0 = 0
 1: 0^2 = 0*0
 2: 0^20^2 = 0*00^2
 3: (0  0)(0 + 0) = 0(0  0)
 4: (0 + 0) = 0
 5: xxxxx

Since when did basic algebra get mistaken for calculus?

Who can do: 10 devided by 3 ?

People are stupid xD. I already said that jwil was right. I had skimmed through it before and the idea was fine until you actually started plugging in numbers. Also, 10/3 = 3.333^^.Barefoot wrote:Since when did basic algebra get mistaken for calculus?

It's better to plug in something other than zero for a/b.ArdRhys4 wrote:

Re: 3.14159265358979323846264338327950288
I didn't plug in zero xD. And I said that Jwilson was right that it wasn't calculus at the beginning of my post. And yes, that is what I meant, anything minus itself == 0 which means that it is wrong.Mua'Dib wrote:It's better to plug in something other than zero for a/b.ArdRhys4 wrote:

That has no mathematical basis. At all... To begin with, .9999... =/= 1. a is .999... in your problem as well... all you did was round and randomly just defy any law that posed a problem for you xD.SnakeEyes wrote:0.99999999999999999... = 1

1/9 = 0.11111....
9*(1/9) = 9*(0.1111....)
1 = 0.9999....
same theorem, different proof :p

one thing .9999... plus .11111 is more then 1 and other thing u r so wrong its crazy lolArdRhys4 wrote:THAT does make sense^^.SnakeEyes wrote:1/9 = 0.11111....
