Okay, I am more than aware that my logic has fallen through somewhere so please show me where.
But surely irrational numbers can't exist.
Okay, so an irrational number is infinitely long and never repeats, yeah?
But surely those things can't go hand in hand. Either it can be infinitely long, or never repeat, one would stop the other.
So each time you add a new number you reduce the chances, and there's an infinite number of numbers so you have a 1/infinity chance of getting the right number and remainder/no remainder. But you also have an infinite number of possibilities because you have an infinite number of numbers. Giving you an infinity/infinity chance. Which I'm pretty sure should come out to a probability of 1, or certain.
I know Infinity is a concept, not a number so you technically can't divide. But think about it an infinite number of tries to get something. So surely irrational numbers are impossible, just we can't generate them far enough to find the end/repeat.
Thank you in advance. Also, try to remember I'm 15. I'm good with concepts of stuff and will probably understand but you may have to say what some words mean. Sorry
