Law of Measurement

While doing scientific researching on the number line, I notice something very interesting. It occurred to me that on a number line I should be using half the marker instead of the whole marker that’s located above the number Zero (0). After all, isn’t the whole marker that is located above the number Zero (0) half negative and half positive?

When adding and subtracting integers on the positive side of a number line using the whole marker located above the number Zero (0), we’re also including the negative half-side of the marker as well.

When adding and subtracting integers on the negative side of a number line using the whole marker located above the number Zero (0), we’re also including the positive half-side of the marker as well.

Realizing this, I discovered that on a number line, the integer or the number Zero (0) itself, is neither negative nor positive but, in fact, is half negative and half positive. This explains why the marker that is located above the integer or the number Zero (0) to be half negative and half positive as well.

On a number line, the integer or the number Zero (0), is the only integer or whole number that is half negative and half positive as well as the marker located above it.

This allowed me to see the importance in taking a correct measurement by utilizing this method of using half of the marker, instead of the whole marker, that is located above any whole number on the negative side as well as on the positive side on a number line.

This method of taking correct measurements applies to any and all types of measurements like when using a Number Line, the Standard English Ruler, Imperial System, Metric System, Units, etc. The method of taking a correct measurement also applies when measuring time.

Based on the importance of my new discovery, I decided to make this method of correct measurement into a new law called, “Law of Measurement”.
