They were discussing [tex]0.9999\cdots \,=\,1[/tex] at another site.

My mind (usually linear) slipped a quarter-inch to the left

. . and I came up with this scenario.

Suppose we ignore the fact that: [tex]10 \div 1 \,=\,10.[/tex]

Instead, we say: 10 divided by 1 equals 9 with remainder 1.

Then we have:

Code:

```
0.9 9 9 9 ...
---------------
1 ) 1.0 0 0 0 ...
9
---
1 0
9
---
1 0
9

1 0
9
---
1
```
