# Infinite decimal

Imagine the infinite decimal number 0.99999999 .. ... ... ... That is a decimal and her endless serie of nines. Determine how much this number is less than the number 1. Thank you in advance.

Correct result:

x =  0

#### Solution:

$a_{1}=0.9 \ \\ q=0.1 \ \\ s=a_{1} / (1-q)=0.9 / (1-0.1)=1 \ \\ x=1-s=1-1=0$

We would be pleased if you find an error in the word problem, spelling mistakes, or inaccuracies and send it to us. Thank you!
