When you are a math teacher and you have to explain a concept at a math class that goes into more than just numerical facts and equations, you have to do it in a way that makes sense. You have to be able to say something that’s true or something that’s not. You can’t just talk in a way that’s all mathematical.
One factor of every number is true is true, but another factor of every number is false is false. For example, a number like 12 is true because it’s the only number that can’t have any factors of 0, 1, or 2.
Sometimes things are just never that simple. For example, some people are afraid of numbers. I am one of them. I’ve always been afraid of anything that doesn’t have a definite, definite answer. I’m not afraid of 1, 2, or 3, I’m afraid of 0. This might sound a little ridiculous, but it does. Because people like me are so afraid of numbers, they can’t even figure out what the answer to a problem is until it’s too late.
