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 3s = 2.1 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 = 1B2 3s + 4B5 6s = 0B5 6s + 4B5 6s = 5B4 6s
T1+T2 = 1B2 3s + 4B5 6s = 3B7 9s or 3B4 tens = 34
