Were you in a class for gifted students?
No, that was the standard curriculum at that time in Romania. We were starting school at 7 so they probably had to cram more stuff in our little heads. Anyway, at 13, the idea that you use a letter for a number that you don't know how much it is, didn't seem too difficult to grasp.

A year latter I was reading George Gamow's "One, two, three, infinity..."[^] and discovering Cantor's diagonal method and Moebius bands. As I said: I've got hooked. Once a nerd, always a nerd Laugh | :laugh:
