### What is Additive Melody?

This is a key minimalist technique that involves the gradual
change of a melodic or rhythmic idea, by the addition or
subtraction of a note to/from a repeating pattern or ostinato.
Alternatively, a note might be replaced by a rest, or a rest by a
note. It is often employed by key minimalist composers such as
Phillip Glass.

### What is The value of 99.9 repeating plus 9.9 repeating plus 9 repeating?

Well 99.99999(repeating) = 100
The rigorous proof for this involves expressing 99.9999...9 as a
geometric series and then calculating the number to which is
converges, which is exactly 100. Interesting huh? Or you can think
about it like this: Since there is no number you can chose that is
between 99.9999(repeating) and 100, which is impossible for two
different numbers, they must be equal.
This also applies here: 9.9999(repeating) = 10
So 99.99(repeating) + 9.99(repeating) = 110.
However 9 repeating = Infinity.
Therefor your answer is simply infinity, as infinity is not a
number so you can not get Infinity + 110.
99.9 repeating plus 9.9 repeating plus 9 repeating =
infinity
