Question:

Mathematics is the base of all other science and arithmetic is the base of mathematics. Arithmetic is the science of numbers and it is taught from the first year of school.

Numbers include whole numbers that are formed by the digits and their combinations. 614 is, for example, formed by three digits- 6, 1 and 4. But numbers also include parts of numbers smaller than one. These are expressed either as fractions (e.g. 1/2) or as decimals (e.g. 0.5).


There are four main operations in arithmetic-addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Some other basic operations include the following-to square, cube or raise to any other power. Most of these operations lead to very interesting and challenging problems.


There was a time when believed that arithmetic was the most absorbing subject in school. But later in school I discovered algebra and geometry, and geometrical theorems and propositions now give me much greater excitement than the sums in arithmetic.
