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.


The question posed asks whether or not the two are exactly equal (no significant figures involved).

Apparently half the people in this thread do not understand repeating decimals.

..... i don't understand: i'm a united states citizen, i'm in high school, i know that .999999 repeating =1, hence 1/9= .11111111 8/9=.88888888....

so.... i mean... what's the big deal here?


perhaps i'm just using myself as too much of a baseline, i don't' know.

who ever uses fractions thinks this is true

1/9= .1 repeating
2/9=.2 repeating
3/9=1/3= .3 repeating
4/9= .4 reaping
5/9= .5 reapting
6/9=2/3= .6 reapting
7/9=.7 reapting
8/9=.8 repeating
9/9=3/3=1

but math is founded on patterns so its .9 repeating

The big deal is that, believe it or not, half the people in the US probably don't understand this concept.
