# What's a number bigger than 1.5 but smaller than 1.6?

Math problem :/

@Stephanie: . 1.599999999999999999999999999999999999(infinity 9's) is EXACTLY the same as 1.6. It is NOT less than 1.6 . one possible proof:

45 / 30 =1.5 1 / 30 = 0.03333333333333333333333333(infinity 3's) exactly 1 / 30 = 0.03333333333333333333333333(infinity 3's) exactly 1 / 30 = 0.03333333333333333333333333(infinity 3's) exactly . Add up the left hand sides and you get exactly 48 / 30 Add up the right hand sides and you get 1.5999999(infinity 9's) exactly. . It is the same amthematically correct logic that shows that: . one third + one third + one third is EXACTLY three thirds i.e. exactly one; . where one third is exactly 0.3 recurring thus

0.33333333(infinity 3's) x 3 ‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾ 0.99999999(infinity 9's) = 1 EXACTLY with no error whatsoever.

1.51 - 1.599999999999999999999999999999999999(infinity 9's)

1.51 1.52 1.53 1.54 1.55 1.56 1.57 1.58 1.59 :)

Like everyone said it can be from 1.51 2 1.59. :D =D

1.51 to 1.59 would be in there.

anything between 1.51-1.59
