    My teacher found an interesting article on biomathematics recently. Apparently a lot of models are built on assuming constants that you can't even measure, however rather than being an exact way of modelling things it allows doctors to much quickly find what variables affect the model and what variables don't do much.

    Division means the same as duplication
