Famous quotes containing the words mark and/or decimal:

    It is the mark of an educated man to look for precision in each class of things just so far as the nature of the subject admits; it is evidently equally foolish to accept probable reasoning from a mathematician and to demand from a rhetorician demonstrative proofs.
    Aristotle (384–323 B.C.)

    David Elkind (20th century)
