  1. Uh, arithmetic is mathematics. Maybe you ought to look up the definition. What you mean to say is that arithmetic is not all of mathematics.

    Not sure what you mean by it not always being possible to check the answer either. In the example given, are we in doubt of the answer? Perhaps you mean to say that in higher mathematics it is sometimes very difficult to check the answer.
