ABSTRACT

Numerical information is ubiquitous in our everyday lives. Only typing in the correct PIN at the ATM or on your smartphone device will grant you access. In France, it is rather usual to have PINs to enter a given building. Numbers help us find the right platform in a train station and our seats in the right compartment. Numbers tell you about the price of your coffee on your way to university or the speed limit on your weekend trip to the mountains.
