I made up a rule that 0 is a constant and that the numbers 1-9 are constants as they are a part of the larger wheel too themselves and it's possible to substitute 0 with x. I was trying to do some simple algebra using the wheel and I came across some interesting observations! I put x in the middle of the wheel and I went on from there. Maybe mathematicians such as yourself could find a use for this. I eventually managed to predict 2x+4 = 7, x = 1.5 using the wheel alone and with a mental block in my head. And without fiddling with the algebra. Last edited by skipjack; July 23rd, 2017 at 04:19 PM.

I was thinking how does something that has no value make a number greater such as 80. 8 followed by a 0 which in mathematical terms is nothing should mean something else. But as mathematicians we think like that that it gives it more value. So it's kind of a proof as I saw it for 0 being a constant.. The numbers are a constant, hence 0 must be a constant too, and such a chart proves this for me.

I've never seen this, I will have a look.

If it were me, I would use Microsoft Power Point to make that with circles, lines, and text boxes to tidy things up a bit. That's what I usually do.
