No, but being a Knight makes it threatening to pieces without actually it being in any danger itself.

actually, 10x-x doesn't equal 9, that's where this piece of shit falls apart.

No, it does.

Because its 9.99999~ - .99999~

It fell apart on the next one. x =/= 1, so 9 * x =/= 9.

.999... (i.e. repeating) is infinitely close to 1

.9, .999, or a point and any number of nines is not. 99.9% is also not 100%, etc.

Why this is still argued about baffles me

Infinity is a difficult concept. You are asking: why is 0.999 . . . with

an infinite number of 9's, equal to the integer 1? Well, it is just a

different way of representing the same number. It even makes sense logical-

ly. Remember how you learned how to count using apples? Let us go back to

that concept. Say you have 9 apples and you give one to a friend. Now what

fraction of the total number of apples have you given away? Right, 1/9.

How do we represent that in decimals? Right, 0.11111 (repeating). Try it

by hand. You will quickly see that the 1's go on forever. Now, how many

apples does your friend have? She has:

(total number of apples) times (her fraction of the total number) =

= (9) times (0.11111 (repeating)) = .99999 (repeating) = 1 apple.
