# How would life be like without numbers?

Without numbers, people wouldn’t know how to count or measure. There would be many important things we wouldn’t know if it weren’t for numbers. For example, what time it is or what day of the week it is. We wouldn’t even know that God gave * 10 commandments* for us to live by! In other words, we wouldn’t know how many there are. And His

*how the hell could we obey that commandment if we didn’t know what day of the week it is? Numbers help us remember the current day of the week!*

**4th commandment: “Remember the Sabbath”,**So you see, numbers should be respected. A long time ago, I met someone who used to have no respect for numbers! This villain character of mine is based on him; his name is

**George Peanut-Brain the Number Hater:**

## Adding (or subtracting) zero(0) from a number doesn’t change the sum, so you can’t increase your score by adding 0 points to it, but does that make 0 a bad number? NO. It’s just the number of *additive identity.*

## 1 is the *smallest natural number.* All of the other natural numbers (2, 3, 4, etc.) are greater than 1, but does that make 1 a bad number? NO. Size doesn’t make a number “bad”!

## During pandemics of the past, hundreds of thousands of people died from diseases since there was no cure or vaccine yet for those diseases when they 1st broke out into the world! Despite how many people died from the disease, is the number *itself* bad? NO. It just tells you how many people that the terrible disease has killed. And you wouldn’t know that if it weren’t for numbers!

## Despite the number 666 being called “the Mark of the Beast”, the number itself isn’t bad, although it scares some people. If you have 666 things, then that’s just a coincidence; it doesn’t mean that you’re cursed! (That goes double for the number 13, which is usually considered *unlucky.*)

## The 1st 6 letters of the English Alphabet(A, B, C, D, E & F) are used as digits in the *Hexadecimal System.* [BAD] in hexadecimal = [2989] in decimal, but that doesn’t make 2,989 a “bad” number!

Note: In case you don’t know, the ** Hexadecimal System **is

**Base 16**. The

**is the commonly used number-printing system!**

*Decimal System*(Base 10)# Numbers commonly appear in mathematics. If you know how to calculate correctly, then you can solve the toughest mathematical problems! Yet however, even average-thinking people have some trouble with problem-solving, even in math!

# Why is mathematical problem-solving so difficult?

Problem-solving is not that simple because most things are more complex than you think. Simple-minded idiots think that killing people that they dislike will solve all their problems. **NO!** There are consequences to actions you do & as the action-doer, you’ll eventually have to pay for those consequences, especially because your action made somebody *suffer.* You have to use the right approaches to a problem & analyze the facts related to the situation. In other words, if you put the puzzle pieces in the right places, then you’ll solve the puzzle.

Some people hate numbers & apparently math! (Like this person I once met!) They are the kind of people who prefer to be incorrect & do things their way! They chose to be incorrect instead of doing things correctly! The main goal in education is to do things correctly, but these people proudly do things incorrectly & assume that everything that they think is true. Assume & you’ll make more mistakes! Also, this essay of mine tells you why you shouldn’t hate numbers.

*This person that I met a long time ago made some mistakes that were obviously incorrect & he even tried to indoctrinate me into thinking that they were correct, but I’m not that stupid! For example, he once asked me: “What’s 1 + 1?”; I gave him the correct answer(2), but then he set me up & said: “No, 1 + 1 = 11 because when you put 2 1’s together, you get 11, see?” Obviously, that was a joke, but it was also a trick; tricks are unfair in mathematics! Besides…*

This is the **incorrect** way to do addition:**1+1=11[𝐹𝐴𝐿𝑆𝐸]***(That isn’t addition, that’s digit arrangement!)*

This is the **correct** way to do addition:**1+1=2[𝑇𝑅𝑈𝐸]**

**1 + 1 = 2** because if you have **1** **apple** in your left hand & another **1** in your right hand, then you’re holding a total of **2 apples;** that’s a premise! (A premise is an obvious logical fact)

At least you can learn from your mistakes, but you still want to make as few as possible because mistakes can be very messy! You should try to correct them as soon as possible, too, because of that. Messes lead to drama, so mistakes can & quite often do cause drama!

This person was an example of a simple-minded idiot, who couldn’t solve a super-complex problem if his life depended on it because he refused to understand the science of problem-solving! And as long as he chooses to be incorrect about everything, specifically ** morals,** he’ll have an infinite amount of consequences to pay & receive countless punishments for the rest of his life for his asinine actions! Unless this person has changed from this foolish way. (Fortunately, people do change as they grow up…hopefully for the better.)

### If it makes non-mathematicians feel better, needing a calculator to solve a math problem DOESN’T mean that you’re stupid! (At least you know how to use a calculator, right?)

# Are all numbers important to us? The answer is YES! In fact, every type of number is important to us somehow; for example, *negative numbers.*

Negative numbers measure *penalties,* positive numbers measure *bonuses.* A negative number can also be used to measure debt, as in money. For example, if you owe someone **$25** but only have **$11** to give, then that means you’re **$14** in debt**(-$14).** Both positive & negative numbers represent *absolute value* except that a negative number means you’re *below, behind or slower,* while a positive number means you’re *above, ahead or faster.* Surely, if you consider the adjectives I used, you get the idea.

### There’s no biggest or smallest number. Adding 1 to a sum over & over & over will just make the total bigger & bigger. This is known as *infinity.*

Adding any number to **infinity** is still **infinity!**

**∞+1=∞; ∞+2=∞; **but **1≠2.**

By the way, **infinity(∞)** is NOT a number; it is the concept of endlessness. Since it never ends, it’s not finite & therefore not a number since all numbers are finite. In the realm of the infinite, strange things happen when infinity is applied to physical things! (For example, an endless line of **A’s** can’t have a **B** in it)

Also, you can’t compare endless things. In other words, you can’t say that 1 endless thing is bigger or smaller than another. 2 infinities most likely won’t be the same since neither one ever ends. Adding any number to infinity is still infinity because it’s endless. However, it’s still true that **1≠2** because:

### 𝑥+1≠𝑥+2, no matter what number *x* is. And remember: **infinity(∞)** is NOT a number!

## Does (Infinity + 1) – Infinity = 1?

### ∞+1=∞, but ∞−∞ is undefined, so (∞+1)−∞ is also undefined.

Furthermore, you can’t compare **infinity** with **infinity** (size-wise) since it’s endless. You can compare real numbers but **infinity(∞)** ISN’T a number!

To conclude this essay, anybody can become a mathematician! Math isn’t that difficult; in fact, it’s logical. Unfortunately, not everyone is a big fan of it. Some people misunderstand plenty of mathematical symbols & other such things related to math. But if you focus on being educated, you can learn what those symbols mean, understand formulae and figure out solutions to problems.
