# Basic Mathematical Operations

Addition, subtraction, multiplication and division are basic and arithmetic functions. These operations are helpful for interconversion numbers in the form of fractions, decimals and Percentage.

Addition, subtraction, multiplication and division find applications even in the most advanced mathematical theories. Therefore, mastering them is one of the keys to progressing in the understanding of mathematics and algebra in particular. Electronic calculators have made these (and other) operations easier, but these devices can also create a dependency that makes math quite difficult to really understand.

Calculators can be a useful tool for checking answers, but relying too heavily on one can deprive you of rigorous mental exercises that will help you not only do math, but fully understand what you’re doing.
