I argue that .999r IS NOT approaching the number 1. Does NOT estimate or round to the number 1. But is in fact the same as the number 1.
By round or estimate to the number one I do not mean the syntactic changing of one number to another. And that any rounding that may occur is no different than rounding 2.000 to 2. They are the same number.interchangeable.
When rounding a number, you first need to ask: what are you rounding it to? Numbers can be rounded to the nearest ten, the nearest hundred, the nearest thousand, and so on.Consider the number 4,827.4,827 rounded to the nearest ten is 4,8304,827 rounded to the nearest hundred is 4,8004,827 rounded to the nearest thousand is 5,000All the numbers to the right of the place you are rounding to become zeros. Here are some more examples:34 rounded to the nearest ten is 306,809 rounded to the nearest hundred is 6,8001,951 rounded to the nearest thousand is 2,000
