a = b : this set = this many pieces a % b = c : this set % this many pieces = this many sets c * b = a : this many sets * this many pieces = this set a : c = b : this set % this many sets = this many pieces per set step 1.) a = 8 pieces step 2.) a / 4 pieces per set = 2 sets step 3.) 2 sets * 4 pieces per set = a step 4.) a : 2 sets = 4 pieces per set The whole set equals a, step 2 and step 4 use a. Step 2 uses a and looks to step 3 to find the value of a. In step 4, parts "8" from step 2 and part "2" from step 3 are blended together, they equal part "4" from step 2. Step 2 denominator is 4 pieces per set, there is two sets Step 4 denominator is two sets, there is 4 per pieces per set e.g. step 2 = 8/4 = 2 step 4 = 8/2 = 4 Step 4 quotient equals the value of 1 step. The denominator gives the value of how many steps total. There is an beginning step to the numerator "8", which equal the quotient "4". There is an ending step to the numerator "8", which equals the denominator "2". _______ The above is the arithmetic, but I want to learn calculus to convert it to calculus but I want to know if it's possible to convert this to calculus first. So my question is is it possible to convert the arithmetic above to calculus? yes or no. And my second question is, can you do so and post the math for me to look at so when I know calculus I can read your math for reference?
