    Hello, C++programmerinCali!

    It took a while to get what you were saying
    . . You left out a decimal point.


    (0.121121112...) + (0.545545554...) \:=\: \_\_\_\_ . shows what important concept?

    The two decimals are irrational numbers.
    . . but their sum is 0.66666... =\tfrac{2}{3} . . . . a rational number.


    . . . that the sum of two positive irrational numbers can be rational ?
