What happens if I accidentally divide one pizza into three equal parts, purely by accident. Would we have to stop using math?
No, 0.999... is equal to 1. Repeating something that is incorrect does not make it correct.I will repeat again, 1.0 is TEN TENTHS.
.999... is NINE TENTHS AND SOME CHANGE!
POST 87It is accurate to 2 decimal places, 1.77... which is CLOSE ENOUGH! It is DAMN CLOSE! It is within .005 units. It is only 5 parts of 1,000 parts too long. That is CLOSE ENOUGH!
You can't make it perfect because there is no finite pi, therefore no finite circle area, therefore no finite square side length
POST 106 - Like someone did in POST 87 ???YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO SWEEP THAT REMAINDER UNDER THE RUG and call it good at .333...

Or bemoan the failure of whatever education MR was edumacatted underGood for a quick read and a chuckle
0.33.....down to Plank scale levelWhat percentage would those parts be?
0.33.....down to Plank scale level
Never said it was.333... is not 1/3.
always a remainder of 1 that remains to be divided in order to complete the division
Never said it was
It's another Motor Daddy strawman!What you are claiming is that 99 pennies equals 100 pennies, and you pocket the other penny, and then claim everyone has 1/3 of 100 pennies!
They add up to 1.0
Continue infinitely!
There are ALWAYS 4 parts!
NO - NOT AT THE LOWEST PLANK LEVEL
Divide the pizza to the lowest Plank scale you WILL HAVE 3 equal parts
MATHEMATICS will allow you your infinity remaining 1
REALITY will not
Are you gonna split an atom into 3 equal parts? How would you get all the electrons into 3 equal portions? How would you know you have equal electrons? How many electrons are there to split into 3 equal parts?
The bottom line is you are saying you can divide 1 electron into 3 equal parts. I am saying you can't, because 1 electron divided by 3 is 4 parts, .333..., .333..., .333..., and the remainder. 4 parts!
Now I get the big picture
I have stood behind persons like you appear to be in this thread
You want the check out person to count the sugar grains in the package to be counted and a signed statement from the packers that ALL packages have the same number
I'm out
Moving to another check out
You heard it here folks! The troll says there is no such thing as 1/3!You are the one claiming you can divide 1 into 3 EQUAL parts. I am claiming that is BS!
1 divided by 3 can NOT be completed, so you CAN'T have 3 equal parts.
Again, in case you missed it:
.333
.333
.333
.001
4 parts that total 1.0
You heard it here folks! The troll says there is no such thing as 1/3!
Wrong. Again I must point out that repeating a falsehood over and over does not make it true. 1/3 = .333... whether you like it or not.1 dozen divided by 3 = .333... + a remainder, which is not 1/3 of 1.0
Wrong. Maybe by the time you finish writing all the threes it takes to replace those dots you'll have figured out why.Troll, I already stated 1/3 of 12 is 4, but 1 dozen divided by 3 = .333... + a remainder, which is not 1/3 of 1.0
