90000000000000... | 25 | 46% | |

both | 9 | 17% | |
seriously, who gives a crap ?! | 18 | 33% |

wich is worth more .. a 9 with unlimited zeroes .. or a five with unlimited zeroes.
and why ?
and why ?

neither because the zeros keep going beyond counting, but probably the 9 because it's higher than five.
unless it's a competition with placings, then 5 is worth more.

They're both already over 9000, there's no point debating anymore.

is illimited even a word? If you mean unlimited then its 9, maybe 9 is more than 5...

9>5

I could also type it in Dutch if you prefer that

learn English, it's a far better way to spend time than pondering the worth of random numbers
#9
also depends on if its negative or positive numbers. if they are negative than 5 would be the greater value if going towards the positive.

It's obviously not his first language you moron.

EDIT: wtf is up with people taking **** on grammer ? lets have a little competition shall we .. we both write 2 texts, 1 in English and 1 in Dutch. Lets see who makes the least amount of mistakes.

9. Because regardless of how many zero's you put after either number, 9 will always be greater.

is nine bigger then five:yes
is 9 with illimited 0's more than 5 with illimited 0's yes
is illimited a word: not in america
is 9 with illimited 0's more than 5 with illimited 0's yes
is illimited a word: not in america
#18
Why is it not obviously 9 with the infinite amount of zeros?
Is 90 not greater than 50?
And 900 > 500
And 9000 > 5000
And 9000000 > 9000000
And 9000000000... > 5000000000...

9 with unlimited zeros, i would think. only becuase its higher than five and with both numbers there is no telling how many zeros there are.

yea but when theres a word that every body know use that word
for instance how many poeple thought illimited wasnt a word
you can use unlimited because everybody knows that

You type even worse than me. So you better stfu.

None, they have no definite value until the zeroes stop somewhere.
Which they won't

Seriously, leave or apologise. He's at liberty to use whatever words he wants
and you shouldn't really moan about his English, when you wrote three sentences and didn't use one punctuation mark.
#28
Unlimited amount of zeros? That makes both numbers infinite meaning that neither would be larger than the other regardless of what the first digit is... I think. We need a proper mathematician in here.
Checkmate!

Noxi...relax, dude!
How many times have you bitched about other peoples' grammar?
I can remember a few times you went all: Lern 2 grammer, noeb!!1!oneone!
So... ?
'Ere, ya twin-legged wooden-slipper-wearing landlo'er! 'Ave a pint with mah!
Anyway. I pick 5 because
1) 0 isn't a number, it is a digit and therefore all the zeroes count for nothing to me in this instance
2) I feel 9 is an aggressive number while 5 is a neutral one

9. Because regardless of how many zero's you put after either number, 9 will always be greater.
This. Assuming of course, the 9 has at least the same amount of zeros after it.

why would I bitch other peoples grammer when I know mine sucks ? I'm pretty sure I never did that, but I did used typing extreme like that before
and I your way of mathematical thinking wish it was always that easy
"1+1=3 because I like 3 more than 2"

9 is bigger than 5.

Thanks a lot for that one. I think it'll help explaining.
You can only compare two numbers if you know at least roughly how big they are. But since the ones discussed never terminate, we can never say how big they are.
Or do you know any way to precisely describe those numbers?
Well, you can try:
Pick the highest number you can imagine.
Those ones are bigger anyway.
Those things aren't even "real" numbers. They are algebraic constructs that stem from basic math:
For every number n there is a number n+m with m>0 and n+m>n.
Those numbers are nice for calculating this and that, but asking questions about their size... is a little like asking what's behind the edge of the universe or what's the meaning of life. There is no definite answer.
So just saying "9>5" is totally pointless because it does not matter. Both numbers never terminate. They are infinitely big.
But hey, I'm not a maths major, so I could be way off.
None, they have no definite value until the zeroes stop somewhere.
Which they won't
THANK YOU, at least one person who thinks before posting.

I'm asumming the number of zero's is unlimited but equal. So a patern develops that show 9 is larger than 5:
9 > 5
90 > 50
900 > 500
9000 > 5000
90,000 > 50,000
900,000 > 500,000
9,000,000 > 5,000,000
90,000,000 > 50,000,000
900,000,000 > 500,000,000
so if you continue that patern on to infinty then you will clearly see that 9 > 5.
9 > 5
90 > 50
900 > 500
9000 > 5000
90,000 > 50,000
900,000 > 500,000
9,000,000 > 5,000,000
90,000,000 > 50,000,000
900,000,000 > 500,000,000
so if you continue that patern on to infinty then you will clearly see that 9 > 5.

Ahem.
Mathematically speaking, one CAN say that 0 is not among numbers if one pleases so. Even philosophically, the digit(or if it please you so - number) marks nothingness. A void of sorts in the mathematical world. Of course those more adept in mathematics can oppose my arguments quite easily but I know all you would say so spare it please
I stick to my statements
