Higher Arithmetic
Higher arithmetic, also known as the theory of numbers, is known for its basics of the natural numbers, simple numbers. The numbers, 1, 2, and 3 are numbers that are known as natural numbers. H. Davenport of Cambridge University once said “…in all the records of ancient civilizations there is evidence of some preoccupation with arithmetic over and above the needs of everyday life” (Introduction). The theory of numbers being a science, is simply just a creation invented for the present times. We, as humans, learn regular arithmetic as children, with games such as marbles and other fun counting games. Eventually, as we get to elementary school, we learn the use of addition, subtraction, division, and multiplication, the basics essentially. Math tends become more complex as we move on to middle school and high school. Middle school and high school is where we eventually start using higher arithmetic to understand the current math we are being taught. Although not everyone has an actual rulebook of the higher arithmetic, these laws stand universal. A question can be asked, how important is higher arithmetic? Higher arithmetic is used daily not just by mathematicians, but people of everyday quality. Higher arithmetic is essential, however, it should not be put over human needs and the qualities of everyday life, higher arithmetic simply should be used to make life easier.

Arithmetic has been around for ages. Historians are not entirely sure as to exactly what day and year arithmetic was created, but it is well known it was used during prehistoric times and it came from central Africa. The earliest forms and records of natural numbers were shown in Egyptian and Babylonian history, arithmetic was shown through the forms of tally marks. Arithmetic was also used in Mayan culture, this shown also through tally marks. The theory of numbers is a “pure” branch of math. By “pure” one can analyze that it generally means that, as a science primarily, it...

...Arithmetic is the ABC of math. Addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division are the basics of math and every math operation known to humankind. In one way or another, every equation, graph, and an enormous amount of other things can be broken down into the ABC's of math, the four basic operations. As people say, math is a language, and addition subtraction, multiplication, and division are its alphabet, along with the number line as well. The properties are basically,...

...Divisor | Divisibility condition | Examples |
1 | Automatic. | Any integer is divisible by 1. |
2 | The last digit is even (0, 2, 4, 6, or 8).[1][2] | 1,294: 4 is even. |
3 | Sum the digits. If the result is divisible by 3, then the original number is divisible by 3.[1][3][4] | 405 → 4 + 0 + 5 = 9 and 636 → 6 + 3 + 6 = 15 which both are clearly divisible by 3.
16,499,205,854,376 → 1+6+4+9+9+2+0+5+8+5+4+3+7+6 sums to 69 → 6 + 9 = 15 → 1 + 5 = 6, which is clearly divisible by 3. |

Now into its eighth edition and with additional material on primality testing, written by J. H. Davenport, The HigherArithmetic introduces concepts and theorems in a way that does not require the reader to have an in-depth knowledge of the theory of numbers but also touches upon matters of deep mathematical signiﬁcance. A companion website (www.cambridge.org/davenport) provides more details of the latest advances and sample...

...formalized, in his book Elements, the fundamentals of arithmetic, as well as showing his lemma, which he used to prove the Fundamental theorem of arithmetic. Euclid's Elements also contained a study of Perfect numbers in the 36th proposition of Book IX. Diophantus of Alexandria wrote Arithmetica, containing 130 equations and treating the essence of problems having only one solution, fraction or integer.

Arithmetic Sequence is a sequence of numbers in which each succeeding term differs from the preceding term by the same amount. This amount is known as the common difference and can be found using a specific formula by substituting the numbers from the word problem into the equation. When you plug in all the information, you are able to find out the...
