Lee entered the room reluctantly but took his place at the back of the classroom. He hadn't attended or at least payed attention in any of these lessons because he really didn't want to since it was Bree's old subject. If he passed or failed this final, it didn't really matter much to Lee.

He took a quill and dipped it in his ink well and wrote on a piece of parchment in his hufflepuffish handwriting:

Erica stepped inside the classroom and waved at Lee in the back. Mouthing a "Good luck!" in his direction, she took a seat next to a sunny window with a nice view of the grounds outside. Fresh air would do her good before the exam started and since she opted to not bring any studying materials with her, she pulled out some parchment and her quill. She wrote the required information on it before turning her attention to the outside and letting her mind wander.

Nadia sighed and walked inside the classroom feeling shaky. A look around told her people were already over there, sitting quite afar from each other in the separate desk, arranged so to avoid any physical contact. In fact, Nadia did not want to take any risks and sat further away from them, barely registering who were those people.

She readied herself taking things from her bag, quill, parchment, etc., and then tried to relax in her seat. Because studing at the very last minute always made her nervous and confused, she restrained from picking up the Arithmancy book in her bag. Now she only waited.

[B]Shakily, Jessica walked inside the classroom, trembling from head to toe. She felt like vomitting - it was her first exam here at Hogwarts. She tried to recall all that was written in her notes, and only ended up confused and dizzy. Shaking off her nervousness, she slipped in a desk not too far from the other students.

She took out a bluish parchment, and dipping her quill deep inside the inkpot, wrote:

Quote:
Orignally Written On Parchment:

Year: First
House: Gryffindor
Student ID: 48158
She went over through the Parchemnt again, hoping her writing didn't look too lame. Finally, she screwed up the lid of her ink bottle and placed aside her pen, looking around absent-midedly.

Professor Fox nodded politely to the students, then pulled out some parchment. "Now, I will be asking two types of questions during this final. Oral questions will be questions which students should raise their hand and answer out loud. More points will be given to the first students to answer these. The second type will be essay questions. Each of you should write your answers in your own words. I cannot stress this last part enough. I know what I've already said, I don't need to re-read it. More points will be given to students who write their answers from their own memory and in their own point of view. Points will be deducted for copying other students' answers word for word. If cheating continues, you will be excused, and your final will be invalidated. Students who arrive late may answer all of the previous essay questions they missed." He shuffled his papers, then watched the students.

"Now then, the first question is an essay question. Please write your answer on your parchment and wait quietly for the next question...

Question 1: essay In your own words, please explain the concept of the zeroeth law of Arithmancy."

Nadia lowered her eyes to her parchment once the question was up and she started writing.

All magic, all people and all things are so said doomed to disappearing. The Zeroeth law is something that is constantly even if never summoned. The properties of the number six might be the only power capable of representing a temporary stop to the power of the Zeroeth Law, if only delaying that decaying in time. (Noteworthy enough since the number 6 other meaning, including a relation to hexes and other such things.) It represents also the fading of power, the corruption of the magic, the progression of age and time. Ashes to ashes, dust to dust. Of more accuratedly, 'Dust thou art, and unto dust thou shalt return.'
Nadia paused on her writing, wondering if she had written enough or if she extend even more. She tapped one end of the quill on teh side of her face pensively.

Erica pulled the parchment close to her and stared at it for a moment in silence before beginning. The scratching of quill to parchment could clearly be heard for several long moments until she was done with the question. Rereading her answer, she nodded to herself, satisfied with her answer. She placed her quill back on the desk and waited for Professor Fox to continue on with the exam.
Quote:
Question 1: essay In your own words, please explain the concept of the zeroeth law of Arithmancy."

The zeroeth law of Arithmancy explains the natural progression of time as it relates to spells, objects, everything in the physical world. In basic terms, the law plays into the effect that if and object/spell/etc. is not maintained properly and constantly, the thing in question will start to decay. If the zeroeth law is left to its own devices long enough, the object in question will decay to the point where it will no longer be of any practical use.

An example of the zeroeth in law of Arithmancy in action that was observed by many was the incident at King's Cross right before the term began. The barrier was under numerous spells and enchantments to keep it from being seen by muggles and to keep it operating properly. However, Platform 9 3/4 was destroyed partly because of the failure of the people responsible for maintaining the area. The proper upkeep wasn't done for quite some time and allowed the zeroeth law to take effect with disasterous results.

Zelda looked at her parchement, thought anout the answer for a moment and started writing:

The Zeroeth law of Arithmancy refers thet spells and curses can be represented by numbers. It is a law that is used in all sorts of magic. Zero is considered to be a powerful number, used while changing codes of spells and curses into normal form. Zero changes all other numbers into identifiable numbers which means that if a number is added or subtracted by Zero, it will remain as it is. The Zeroeth law of Arithmancy can undo any spell. Zero refers to "emptiness" which suggests change and decay. It means, wiht the help of the Zeroeth law we can change or decay every kind of curse or spell.

the zeroeth law of arithmancy states that all spells, jinxs ,curses and objects can be represented as numbers. This law is used in other branches of magic as well as arithmancy and it also states that all numbers can reduced or increased to make zero which is an extremely powerful number which can reduce things to nothing
luna looked at her awnser, it was small, but at least it was something

Default Arithmancy Final - Essay On The Zeroeth Law Of Arithmancy
JayMay ♥ Big, yellow duckie <3

Jessica unscrewed her inkpot, dipped in her quill and pressed it to the smooth surface of her parchment. She jotted down the question: "In your own words, please explain the concept of the zeroeth law of Arithmancy," and paused for a moment, concentrating hard on what to write.

After a while, she lowered her quill and wrote down the heading in neat, block writing on the top right of her paper. Thinking hard, she began to scribble down anything she knew about The Zeroeth Law of Arithmancy.


Quote:
THE ZEROETH LAW OF ARITHMANCY

The Zeroeth Law explains that all spells, charms and jinxes can be portrayed by numerical values. Zero is a highly significant figure here. It represents nothingness and non-existence. Charms and Spells can be reduced to nothingness through arithmetic equations and expressions. While a figure is subtracted or added to zero, it remains as it is. However, when multiplied by Zero, it changes too into zero, so it actually decays and perishes. This is the very law which explains why each and every existing object/ spell is apt to perish. Through the Zeroeth law every curse or charm can be undone. If the Zeroeth Law is left on its own, it will decay an object until it disappears. It is not summoned, but is always there.

The best example to explain the Zeroeth Law more clearly is when, some twenty years back, the highly powerful enchantments on the Antipodean Opaleyes Dragon Colony of Great Britain were left to themselves and not revitalized or recharged. With the progression of time, the Zeroeth Law went in effect and after some years, the enchantments perished, leading to the deaths of two wizards and a muggles when a dragon went on rampage.

In short, we can say that according to this law, Zero is the number that changes every object or spell into nothingness and can remove/ reduce it. Every existing being and non-living thing is doomed to fade away from the world one day due to the Zeroeth Law. It depicts the succession of time and how, with time, all things must disappear.
She paused once more. Skimming through the essay, she could not find it very satisfactory. But that was all she knew about the Zeroeth Law. She racked her brains for any more information but after a while, she gave up. She went through it again, putting in a few commas and correcting several spelling errors. Finally, she put down her quill on the side of her desk and went over it once more.

Default Arithmancy Final - Essay On The Differences Between Magical Properties of Number 2 An

Jessica chewed the corner of her quill in despair. How the heck would she know the Magical Properties of - of - of --- whatever it was....??? A bit hopelessly, she racked her brains. Well, she guessed neat writing had some marks too..... Desperately, she began to write.

Quote:
CONTRASTS BETWEEN THE MAGICAL PROPERTIES OF 2 & 3
Belonging to the Lucky Primes group, three is a Prime number produced by complex elimination methods called "Sieves." Some of its properties are magical and mystic. Contrasting it with two, the major difference is that although three is a completely new number in every sense of the word, two remains the only even magical number. Other differences are as follows:

Early Wizards associated incomprehensible or unexplainable things with evil and three is considered the superstitious or demonic number mainly due to the fact that no creature on earth walks on three legs, therefore, three is usually related to superstition and creatures considered low by wizards such as house elves while two is related to sweetness and friendship and equality of two opposite beings.

While three depicts that to make a successful relation, three things are needed: love, care and compassion, two depicts how true friendship can exist divinely between only two people and the skill of successful socializing with others.

Three is also associated with learning that differs from our usual method of textbook reading but through life experiences, effort and struggle. Two, on the other hand, depicts the relation between master and scholar and exhibits how successful understanding of life and feelings is acquired through a bond of two i.e. teacher and learner.

*Many relate three with good-luck, wealth and even treasure while two portrays bloodshed, bad luck, disunion, differences and opposites, for instance, good and evil, black and white, male and female, dark and light, union and separation.

*While three depicts that three beings can more successfully accomplish a task, two exhibits the need of love and unity between two to accomplish something.

*Two may be considered feminine, sensitive, and delicate whereas three is considered the opposite – strong, impervious and robust.

*The creativity of the number 3 can be seen in the divisions of a human where three things make us whole: mind, body, and spirit, whereas two represents how two things make us whole and successful i.e. feelings and actions.

The best example that can fully explain the contrast between the magical properties of 2 and 3 is the fight between Lord Voldemort and Harry Potter. Lord Voldemort believed two to be the more powerful number as he considered two things could help him achieve his task: mind and power. Whereas, his opponent believed in three things: love, magic and courage, in other word, the powers of the magical number 3.
[/B]
Jessica stopped just as abruptly as she had begun. Her right hand was sweaty and aching from the constant scribbling. She put down her quill and after a quick look at her essay, picked it up again, this time in her left hand. It was a great advantage, being able to use both hands. She paused and took several deep breaths. This essay seemed worse than before, but what could she do? She had forgotten each and every thing they had been taught and discussed in class. Holding her head pensively in her hands, she placed the parchment on top of her old one and stared idly and unhappily at it. In her mind she could already picture Professor Dainsie informing her that she had flunked every test. She played lazily with her quill and, with her cramped right hand, feverishly began to correct her spelling mistakes.

Finally, she laid down her quill and almost upset her inkpot on the parchment. To avoid any drastic accident, she screwed the lid even tighter and gazed moodily at her essay.


OOC – Sorry, but I edited my essay. I hope no one minds, but it just didn’t seem right.

P.S: Professor, how do we get to know our marks?

Two questions had passed and none he knew the answer too. He regretted incredibly now for not studying this class or even attending it this year. He simply placed his parchment in his bag along with his quill and ink well. He got up and swung his bag round his shoulders "Sorry sir, I can't do this". He left the classroom without giving the chance for the Professor to answer him back, Lee would just have to put up with a 'T' on his paper.

Nadia rubbed her temples. She was still not completely convinced with her essay but it would have to do. Now she needed to concentrate on the next, and here it come. Nadia wrote down under a different label...

Quote:

Both are basic numbers; while Two represents the simple opposition ( like this same example, I'm oppositing 3 to no-3, which in this case is 2 ), Three intends to find "neutrals", "middles", "grays" in a black-n-white understanding; third options. It means we ascend a level in reasoning as well, for instead of two sides, irreconcilable, from a thesis and its anti-thesis we can reach a synthesis that includes both without contradictions.
Nadia paused a bit, wondering if it would be enough and if she should mention something about the thinking vs reality thing. It came out as something rather awkward. Finally she wrote down;

Erica's train of thought was momentarily broken when she saw that Lee had up and left the final exam all together. Saddened that her friend couldn't do the exam at all, she sighed and stared at her parchment for a long, silent moment just thinking.

Finally, Erica started scribbling down her answer and when she was done, she set her quill down on her desk. There was a very nice looking tree outside the window that looked perfect for sitting under with plenty of shade. What she would give to be there at this moment, she couldn't express enough.


Quote:
Question 2, essay: In your own words please explain the magical properties of the number 3 and contrast them with the magical properties of the number 2, as we explored them in class.

The magical properties of the number three represents a more relaxed approach to thinking as the number three expands upon the duality of the number two and it's dualistic thinking with an "inbetween" instead of two directly opposite sides. The dualistic thinking is common among humans for purposes of perception while the number three is more associated with house elves due to their ability to deal with change and to accomidate for such.

Another facet of the number three that relates to this higher form of thought is its relation to other branches of magic. This number is more often found in the areas of Ancient Runes, Arithmancy, Astronomy and Divination while the number two and its properties make it a better fit for the the area of Charms. Most spells have a strong association to the number two because of the ability of every number to be broken down into the sum of two prime numbers.

Professor Fox examined the students. "There will be one more essay question, then I will begin the oral questions. So, the last essay question is the following.

"Question 3, essay: Write in your own words the difference between the permenance associated with 7 and the longevity associated with 6."

He flipped the pages parchment over and examined the students. He thought this last question would be difficult for a number of them, but their understanding of basics was paramount before they could continue to application.

Nadia lowered her eyes to the parchment again. Began writing...

In Arithmancy, if we would want to compare the powers of number 6 and 7 by assigning to them each a magical object or spell to represent, we will find: That one, six, acts resisting though time and in directly relation with the Zeroeth Law and the other, seven, has less resistence to the passing of time (or Zeroeth Law at that) but it's more powerful against any other spell that intends on breaking though it to try weakening the spell/object effects or stop said effects. In other words, Seven is powerful against other spells, Six is powerful against the passing of time.
Nadia paused again, pensive as to what to add next. Her quill lowered to the parchment again,

In a certain spell protected by both numbers, it should both make sure it last though time (6) and though magical vandalism (7).
Well, she wasn't completely happy with the final result, as in, could have been better narrated, but it was good enough, she pondered. It would have to do.

Professor Fox shifted some parchments and looked up at the students. "Those of you not finished with the essay questions may continue writing them at your own pace until the end of the final. We will now begin the oral questions.

"Question 4, oral: Can someone please tell me what the magical properties of the number 8 are?"

Nadia raised her hand, "Eight is a complex number, a composite and represents spells which deal with location and search like four, like an extension of the smaller composite. Four is the number used in the finding, providing the data: latitude-longitude-altitude-time. Similarly, Eight gives detailed data but which deals two set of information and the double of data, and hence eight gives us the information to determine the location of an object in movement, from point A and to B.

"Eight is dependant of time and because of its complexity also means super-logical thought or reasoning," she finished out of breath.

Professor fox nodded. "Yes, very good Ms. Rey. Though I would hesitate to use the term 'complex number' in my classroom. The next oral question is as follows:

"Question 5, oral: Please tell me the importance of prime numbers in Arithmancy."
