An infinity between O and 1? (TFiOS spoilers)3 Replies

Alright, in The Fault in Our Stars, Hazel muses about there being an infinite amount of numbers in between zero and one. Like, 0.11111111, 0.88899845, 0.999 (...). It just goes on. This made me…Continue

How do you feel about writing on books?8 Replies

I... have a neutral stance on this. For English class, I write notes on my books because it's easier when I'm reading over them again for an exam. For just recreational reading, I don't usually write…Continue

An infinity between O and 1? (TFiOS spoilers)

Alright, in The Fault in Our Stars, Hazel muses about there being an infinite amount of numbers in between zero and one. Like, 0.11111111, 0.88899845, 0.999 (...). It just goes on. This made me wonder: can there really be an infinite amount of numbers if there's a range? The range is "between zero and one". So how can there be an infinite amount of numbers between zero and one?
