Modern mathematics. Not old common sense and logic

That's where I make a distinction and where my query about

0.999999r being infinitely close to 1 came from - a logical point

of view, not arguing mathematical proofs. If mathemeticians

in a mathematical world choose to represent 0.99999r as 1 then

I have no problem with that and respect your opinion Andrew
