    Mathematics – you only deal with 10 integers, but with + – = X, divide, etc complex thoughts can be expressed.

    Example: James Clerk Maxwell apx 1860-70 mathematically theorized that electromagnetic (radio) waves should exist, but at the time had no idea how to generate or detect them!

    Example 2: HPV was first detected mathematically, yep- what we’re now giving our children shots to protect against!
    The mathematical branch of statistics theorizied its existance before the biological proof!

    Wasn’t there also an ancient culture that instead of using base 10 for the numbering system used a base 60 ie the basis for 360 degrees we still use for a circle?

    And then some primitive cultures their mathematics consisted of one, two, and many! Enemies found them easy to defeat, just send sixty men into the forest, and then send five back to the base. Enemy scouts would report that many men went into the forest but many men left

    Arithmetic, Mathematics, advanced math, algebra, calculus.
    In each step, you are to come up with more answers with fewer givens.

    A computer has calculated the value of Pi out to one billion decimal places. The only practical use is to test computers, ie see if another one comes up with the same answer.
