I am not the one saying it idiot, that's a formal definition of value concept, be it number or anything...Are you mentally impaired...

You should not do anything else than grammar moron...People like you should not deal at all with data management theory...

*variables* are independent from definition of *value* concept. Only transformation are necessary to define values. variables are merely temporary placeholders for values represented by symbols such as *x* to facilitate deductive reasonning onto formal definitions of transformations.
