You inspired me today. I thought of this, although it might not be too good.

What do you get when you convert 0011101100010000 to 3B10 ?

Beats the hex out of me.

There are only 10 kinds of people in this world: those who understand binary and those who do not.

I saw a bumper sticker yesterday that said: There's no place like 127.0.0.1

Same joke, just IPv4 vs IPv6.

Are you really asking? The answer (with technical qualifications) is yes.

1/9=0.11111111...
9*(1/9)=9*(0.111111111...)
1=0.999999999...

Yes, I am really asking. I came across a list of "common misconceptions" on wiki, and I saw this-


" Contrary to a widespread perception, the real number 0.999...—where the decimal point is followed by an infinite sequence of nines—is exactly equal to 1.[269] They are two different ways of writing the same real number.[270] A 2009 study by Weller et al.[271] states that "Tall and Schwarzenberger (1978) asked first year university mathematics students whether 0.999... is equal to 1. The majority of the students thought that 0.999... is less than 1." Weller et al. go on to describe their own controlled experiment, performed "during the 2005 fall semester at a major research university in the southern United States. Pre-service elementary and middle school teachers from all five sections of a sophomore-level mathematics content course on number and operation participated in the study." The results are striking: "On the question of whether .999...=1, 72% of the control group and 83% of the experimental group expressed their view that .999... is not equal to 1.""

As I noted elsewhere, try subtracting 1-09999.....

You should get 0.00000...

Care to expand on that a bit? (I'm being serious.) Did you find the article helpful? confusing? provocative? all of the above?

If two objects are 12 inches apart. How long will it take for them to touch each other if every second the distance betweem them is halved?
If I were to agree with you. Then we would both be wrong. As of Apr 5, 2015 10:26 pm I have 880 posts. Used to have over 1,000
