    Er…

    10 * 0.999 = 9.99, not 9.999

    U JELLY?

      It’s 0.999….. (as in to the infinite decimal digit) not 0.999
      LOL

    0.999 * 10 = 9.99

    9.99 – 0,999 = 8.991

    8.991 / 9 = 0.99

    Problem?

    1 in fact equals 0,9999…, but you can do it analogical with other periodic numbers, for example 0,3333:
    x=0,3333…
    10x=3,3333…
    9x=3
    x=3

    correct me if i’m wrong

      9x = 3
      x = 3/9 = 1/3 = 0.3333

      corrected.
