1/3 = 0.333... repeating (from now on referred to as 0.3r)
Let's add 1/3 to itself...
1/3 + 1/3 = 2/3
If we substitute 0.3r for 1/3, we get...
0.3r + 0.3r = 0.6r
so 2/3 = 0.6r
Now let's add 2/3 to 1/3...
2/3 + 1/3 = 3/3
and again, substitute...
0.6r + 0.3r = 0.9r
so 3/3 = 0.9r
However, when you divide a number by itself, it equals 1.
So 3/3 = 1
and by subbing, we get...
1 = 0.9r

So in other words, if someone were to say that there was a 99.9r% chance of failure, that would mean there is a 0% chance of success.

It also means that if you're taking a math test, you can totally put all your answers in the form .9r, and your teacher would have to mark it correct.

If you remove a cylinder from an orange and the earth so that both created a napkin ring of exactly the same height they'd also both have the same volume.

Google The Napkin Ring Problem.
