Ex. 34 Study Question


#1

With what you know of the difference between these types of numbers, can you explain why the
year 2010 in ”January 1, 2010,” really is 2010 and not 2009? (Hint: you can’t pick years at random.)

It’s 2010 because of the cardinal way of thinking??


#2

Yep, there’s no Zeroth year. We don’t even have that word in English because zero mean “nothing” so it can’t be the beginning of something.
