This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

  • Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
  • Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
  • Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.
  • Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.

It is equal to 1. Just like 0.00000...=00.00000... = 0. :)

100N=99.9999....    99N=99.999999...0.999999.....    99N=99    N=1100N = 99.9999.... \implies 99N = 99.999999... - 0.999999.....\implies 99N = 99 \implies N=1

Find any number between 0.99999.... 0.99999.... and 11. You can't! So they have to be equal!
