In dozenal (base 12)
0.4 + 0.4 + 0.4 = 1

Convert the numbers to decimal:
0.333... + 0.333... + 0.333... = 1

Any further questions?

all the symbols and definitions I saw were
(0.) "dozenal" = "base 12" (irrelevant)
1. "0.4" = "0.333..."
2. "numbers" = "symbols"
3. "convert" = "combine 1 and 2"
did I miss?

Take out a pen and paper and convert 0.4 from base 12 to base 10

Refute what? You haven't said anything other than "I feel like it shouldn't be true". How about actually finding proofs of this and critiquing them?

It's a fucking base artifact.

It's self-evident that it isn't true, that's why everyone intuitively thinks it isn't true.

Show me the integer between 1 and 2.

Therefore int 1 = int 2

Integer rather than decimal number. There can be nothing in between them. Two consecutive integers have the smallest possible distance between them using a system of only whole numbers, but they are not the same.

Similarly, using decimal numbers 0.999... and 1 have the smallest possible distance between them using decimals in the real number framework, but they are not the same.

true, and the difference is in the system
>0.999... and 1 have the smallest possible distance between them using [a system of only] decimals
true, and the difference isn't in the system

0.999... + (0.000...1 / 2)

0.999... + (0.000...1 / 2) = (1.000...4...999...)

0.999... + (0.000...1 / 2) = (1.000...4...999...)

sorry forgot most important part
* 0.999... + (0.000...1 / 2) = (1.000...4...999...0)
