Feynman lectures question where he explains math in terms of nuts.

Feynman has a few lectures where he explained math numbers with Mayan counting as an example.

I am not looking for that example. The example

I am looking for is where he just uses nuts to give examples of math, add,

subtract, multiply, square root & etc. His purpose was to explain concepts

of the math he would be using in his lectures. He explained that he would

not be using actual number in explaining quantum mechanics as that was

not necessary and bothersome so he would be eliminating that from his

explanations by using small numbers. For example in finding directions

of vectors he would only use simple numbers to get answers as real

calculations with actual numbers were not needed for understanding of how

the direction was arrived at.

I think I saw him give the nuts example in the YouTube series

There are about 10-12 videos in the series but depends on how the poster

broke them up as individual posts.

The lectures were wonderful and very difficult for me. The nuts math

part was extra special and I would like very much to find that video section

again. I have gone through the starting lectures a few times as I seem to

remember being in that part of the full series but without finding them. I

may have seen the nuts explanation in an individual video but that was

quite a while ago so am not sure of my remembrance but think it was

in the series where he is first in a dark running like outfit and later in the

series with a light shirt and dress pants.

If anyone knows this particular explanation and provide a link I will

honor your ancestors as going over it again would be special for me.
