Hi;

**In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.**

**I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.**

**Online**

Why do we care?

It is just a question. math really does not have to have a purpose. I like it too but mathematicians insist that it does not need too.

Hi Agnishom;

I am sure that ShivamS meant no insult and was just saying he did not understand.

**In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.**

**Online**

I was not insulting him either.

Thanks. And I didn't mean that your post was an insult. By the way, I'm really slow at understanding jokes.
