    Fermatt s last theorem is a huge corollary of the rationality of elliptic curves over rational numbers where states every elliptic curve over rational numbers

      Fermatt's last theorem is a huge corollary of the rationality of elliptic curves over rational numbers where states every elliptic curve over rational numbers comes from a Modular form.
      Yours.

      A light moment for the team, please I know I am wrong but I am just having fun.   OK, observe that:   a) 0.111... = 1/9 = 1/10 + 1/100 + 1/1000 + ...

        OK, observe that:
         
        a) 0.111... = 1/9 = 1/10 + 1/100 + 1/1000 + ...
           0.222... = 2/9 = 2/10 + 2/100 + 2/1000 + ...
           0.333... = 3/9 = 3/10 + 3/100 + 3/1000 + ...
           0.444... = 4/9 = 4/10 + 4/100 + 4/1000 + ...
           0.555... = 5/9 = 5/10 + 5/100 + 5/1000 + ...
           0.666... = 6/9 = 6/10 + 6/100 + 6/1000 + ...
           0.777... = 7/9 = 7/10 + 7/100 + 7/1000 + ...
           0.888... = 7/9 = 7/10 + 7/100 + 7/1000 + ...
        Extrapolating from the above, would it be true for me to say:
           0.999... = 9/9 = 9/10 + 9/100 + 9/1000 + ... = 1
        If I am wrong, then what is the rational fractions of:
           0.999999999.....
         
        Thanks.

        ...   Yes. The decimal representation of terminating rationals are not unique. This has to be adjusted for when doing things like using Cantor s diagonal

          Yes. The decimal representation of "terminating" rationals are not unique. This has to be adjusted for when doing things like using Cantor's diagonal argument to prove the reals are not countable.

          So indeed 1.99999999999... is an even prime.
