Shoot straight JohnnyUser ID: 28009509 United Kingdom 11/24/2012 01:48 PM Report Abusive Post Report Copyright Violation | 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. Quoting: Anonymous Coward 28190336 Yeah, the limit must be 1.11111119 I think. Can't be any number bigger than 1.11111119 imo.

Brian MoserUser ID: 27317240 United States 11/24/2012 01:50 PM Report Abusive Post Report Copyright Violation | 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. |

Anonymous Coward User ID: 1499647 United States 11/24/2012 03:26 PM Report Abusive Post Report Copyright Violation | 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. |

Anonymous Coward User ID: 28345474 United Kingdom 11/24/2012 03:40 PM Report Abusive Post Report Copyright Violation | 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. |

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. Quoting: Anonymous Coward 7570540 Yea, because knowing more than the bare minimum is simply pointless. Brian Moser Or a fan of Formula One. |
