No it doesn't because 9/9 == 1, not 0.9(recurring) (and 5/9 is not 0.2

recurring, but I guess that was a typo!)

4.99999999999 (repeating) is not equal to 5.00000000 (repeating), that's why

we have different numbers to express it. However, 4.99999999999 (repeating)

is nearly equal to 5

This reminds me of the thing where :-

- There is 1 cake

- Each person takes half of the amount of cake that is left, indefinatly

Therefore there is always some cake left......
