which is exactly equal to zero.
For those who may have missed it:
1/9 = 0.111(repeating)
2/9 = 0.222(repeating)
8/9 = 0.888(repeating)
9/9 = 0.999(repeating) which is EXACTLY EQUAL TO ONE.
A math teacher explained this to me years ago (no Chris, not Mr. Zurick).
Also, I'm in the Round To Even crowd. This method was explained in a college chemistry text and was to be used because it
statistically caused the least errors.
