Background - why math symbols are used. . .

Math Symbols are a concise way of giving lengthy instructions related to numbers and logic.

Symbols are an invention, not a discovery. They are a communication tool. Symbols are used to eliminate the need to write long, plain language instructions to describe calculations and other processes.
