Thoughts about Division

My friend Kurt one time said that all math is just clever addition. In reality he is very right. We can even prove that Division itself can be reduced to a simple subtractive problem (which is addition with negative numbers when you think about it).

Division and Modulation

Division is how many times you can fit a smaller number into a bigger number. If you can't fit the n into k in say n / k. Then you get a fraction. Here is a Javascript implementation that I created to demonstrate both Division and Modulation.

What does this mean?

Personally to me, it's just super fascinating that we can dissect any axiom proof into a very complex additive problem. Math is so fun and cool. The implementation I showed is called "The Division Algorithm".
