0.999...

A random fun-fact for the math buffs: the repeating decimal 0.999... is actually exactly equal (not approximately, please note, exactly) to the real number 1. For the rather simple proof, see wikipedia. And it seems that a lot of math students are confused about this matter.

when it comes to infinitely recurring numbers, or numericals involving series, mostly the answer is 1 !!! (or some whole number)

sometimes tho you would get pi (a fav)... or even infiniti!
