Cure Math Dislike: BundleCounting before Adding

We ACT to deal with the outside world.         
We MATH to deal with the natural fact MANY ???
Oops, sorry, MATH is not an action word!
We COUNT & ADD to Master MANY.

  • BundleCount & ReCount:

T = 7 = I I I I I I I = III  III  I = 2B1 3s2.1 3s 
T = 2B1 3s = 1B4 3s = 3B-2 3s    (Overload or Underload)
T = 2B1 3s = 1B2 5s = 3B1 2s = 1BB1B1 2s
T = 3×8 = 3 8s = 2B6 9s = 2B4 tens, or the sloppy version 24
T = 336 /7 = 33B6 /7 = 28B56 /7 = 4B8 = 48

Counting gives a decimal number with a unit (a natural number).
Adding OnTop, a Total may be ReCounted to shift the unit.
Adding NextTo, means Integration of areas.

  • Add OnTop & Add NextTo:

        T1+T2 = 1B3s + 4B6s = 0B5 6s + 4B6s = 5B4 6s
        T1+T2 = 1B3s + 4B6s = 3B7 9s  or  3Btens = 34
