There is a debate at my school.

If 1/3=33.33%

And 2/3=66.66%

Would 3/3 be 99.99% or 100%?

If 1/3=33.3 repeater %

And 2/3=66.6 repeater %

Would 3/3 be 99.9 repeater % or 100%?

 

$$\\0.\dot3 = 1/3\\
0.\dot6 = 2/3\\
0.\dot9 = 3/3 = 1\\\\
$that is $\\
0.\dot9 \;=\; 99.\dot9\%\; =\; 1\\\\
$They really are equal! $$$

3/3 = 1 or 100% ...... The values for 1/3 and 2/3 are decimal approximations.
