Passage-2 Passage Writing By Juber AhmedPublished on Tuesday, September 10, 2019 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. (166 words) Answer : The base of science is mathematics and its başe is arithmetic, or the science of numbers which is taught from the first year of school. Numbers comprise of whole numbers (formed by lights) and their combination; and numbers less than one are expressed either in fractions or decimals. Addition, subtraction,multiplication and division are its main operations while basic operations including to square, cube or raise to the power are very interesting and challenging. Earlier arithmetic was most absorbing subject for me but later on geometrical theorems and propositions proved much exciting Share This Post : About AuthorJuber Ahmed Related Post
