On the other hand, the natural numbers, being an abstract system, have a disadvantage or two from a practical point of view. As an example, take the numbering of pages in books. Everybody knows how to number them in the good old everyday system that all the publishers use. How does one number pages mathematically? 60 ARITHMETIC Reply to Objection 4. It will be seen below that numbering things is just as hard, or just as easy, whether you do it with the natural numbers or with the numerals of commerce-except that if a book is too long there may be technical difficulties in getting the numerals on the pages towards the end of the book.
These equations give and hence a = b + p = (a + q) + p = a + (q + p). If a is cancelled from the above equation, the result is O=q+p. But then it is known that both q and pare 0, so a = b. That is just what everyone has always thought-the subtraction works in both directions only if the two numbers are the same number. The last-mentioned argument appears so finical and precise that it is in danger of being considered correct. It has one mistake, however. 6. Whether, in an equation setting the sum of two natural numbers equal to another, if the same number appear on either side, one may cancel it?
But this is false. Hence it is incorrect to cancel in mathematics. Reply to Objection 3. It is true that cancellation is not always correct; but it is correct under the conditions stated in the question. The example given is multiplication. I ANSWER THAT one may cancel. , suppose that x+p=x+q never holds true unless p=q also holds true, no matter what the numbers p and q are. Suppose that y is also cancellable. Since (x + y) + p = x + (y + p) (x + y) + p = (x + y) + q from one can infer that and hence that p =q.
