Hi , I know that I already opened this thread before but I really want to understand and to get the idea behind of the terms quantity.
I attached a photo which is explaining everything, from point a to b there's quantity 5, from b to c there's quantity 6, at the point itself there's no quantity and I understand that but what's still confusing me, lets assume that 5 is representing 5 potato which are scattered from point a to b, and 6 potato are scattered from point b to c, who said if I go from point c to any point which exceeds the point b then the area which are passed from point b to the point that I exceeded by (( I mean the black area that I colored in the photo where is the "?" ) then I will count any potato in that area? maybe that all five potato which are scattered from point a to b are scattered in away excluded the area of "?" then the area of "?" nullity and there's no quantity in it .. so why we are consider that area of "?" as quantity ?! who said in that area "?"(see the photo) will be potato?! ofcourse potato are scattered from point a to b but none confirms that there in that area "?" will be potato .. any help please to illustrate that thing? I'M VERY CONFUSED in that thing how area actually representing a quantity .. is that theory in math?! thanks!!
maybe that area (( see where is "?" )) not including potato .. so how we are consider it as quantity?! and if we have area then it's represented a quantity ?!
thanks
