Yes. There are many parts of a whole number that make up a full number, I.e 1.11111111,1.11111112,1.11111113 etc and so forth pretty much until infinity. There are limits, however.

Yeah, the limit must be 1.11111119 I think. Can't be any number bigger than 1.11111119 imo.

Infinitesimals...there are infinite numbers in any given number given that infinity is true

Yes, it's called the continuum hypothesis. It basically says that between any two measurable points is an infinite number of more measurable points.

If you make a perfect circle and draw an infinite number of radii that extend past it's perimeter, then draw a larger circle around that, there will be gaps between the lines regardless of there being a limitless number.

Crazy shit. There are mathematicians that have committed suicide trying to understand it.

But on the downside, if infinity is true, then none of us will ever be able to travel any distance ever again.

yes, here is an example.

Take 1 and 2 we have (1+2)/2 = 3/2 which is >1 and < 2 hence between 1 and 2
now take 1 and 3/2 we ahve (1+3/2)/2 = 5/4 which lies again between and 3/2 or between and 2
we can go on infinite no of times to generate numbers between 1 and 2.

Yes, there are. However, unless you are in some scientific field, anything more than a hundredth is incidental to us in our daily lives and not worth bothering with.

Re: ARE THERE INFINITE NUMBERS BETWEEN 1 AND 2 AND SO ON
This depends on your point of view. You could have infinite fractions between but, if yoi treat every possible fraction as a singularity ( of 1) then there will be no numbers between one and two.

This is ome of the flaws about division. Division involves negation. For example, if you divide the number 1 then you end with 1/2. But ask yourself what happened to the other 1/2?

If i have an orange and divide it i end up with 2 halves, not one. Yet in math, 1 divided into 2 = 1/2 or .5.

For starters 1.111111120 would be 1.11111112

So no on that

As for 1.111111199

Well, thats goes back to the whole infinitum idea : D
