Arithmetic is a branch of mathematics and their basic properties under the operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division and exponentsas well as percents radicals fractions and decimals

In general, more basic properties of the integers belong to arithmetic while deeper or more difficult results belong to number theory, but the boundary is not extremely clear. For instance, modular arithmetic might be considered part of arithmetic as well as part of number theory.

One of the earlier arithmetic devices was the abacus.

according to Wikipedia Arithmetic comes from the Greek word arithmos, "number" and tiké [téchne], "art") This article is a stub. Help us out by expanding it.
