Mathemáticks. n.s. [μαθηματικὴ.] That science which contemplates whatever is capable of being numbered or measured; and it is either pure or mixt: pure considers abstracted quantity, without any relation to matter; mixt is interwoven with physical considerations. Harris.
The mathematicks and the metaphysicks
Fall to them, as you find your stomach serves you. Shak.
See mystery to mathematicks fly. Pope.
