3.1 Introduction

In this chapter, we will explore how Julia can be used to perform simple mathematical calculations that are the basis of most computational tasks. A basic knowledge of high-school-level mathematics is required for understanding the contents of this chapter. The chapter will include illustrations that represent mathematical numbers of various kinds and their algebraic operations as well as other operations used to define mathematical computations. In fact, Julia proves to be a good option while teaching basic mathematics due to its simple learning curve.
