That's not exactly a high school math question when you look at the specifics.

You didn't learn algebra in high school?

Well, it is, after all, the American Educational System.

This is why Americans fail at math.

I thought it was because in *9 states welfare pays better than the average teacher's salary...

It's very possible to learn nothing from high school because the curriculum is painfully behind where you're at.

As an American who sucks at math: .99999 is a very close to just plain (1) so, most round up that extra .00001 anyway to make it simpler. It also would appear to me that unless you must get specific, adding that extra tiny bit is fine, as long as you don't need to be very specific. If you must be specific, then for the love of god don't add that bit. It's not hard to write out the multiplication and/or put it in a calculator.

Depends on the degree of accuracy you're shooting for. 1 could range from 0.5 to 0.9. Where as 1.0 can range from 0.50 to 0.99 and so forth. If you're not going to state the accuracy, then its a completely pointless subject to argue about.

You learn how to learn in high school. You don't learn anything useful.
