No.
Again, so what? The quaterions are useful and works just like any other numbers. What's your problem here?

This is mathematics so what a computer does or doesn't do is wholy irrelevant.

Yes you are, for that I am PUTTING YOU ON MY IGNORE LIST!

No not really, I just had to do it.

Windows 3.1 and windows 10 enter a race. Who gets to the finish line first?

Irrelevant in this discussion on mathematics.

There's a whole section for math word problems on the SAT.

There are many logical problems of all kinds in mathematics. Your point being? It has no relevance to computer performance at all. That belongs in computer science, not mathematics. In mathematics we have infinite storage and infinite processing capabilities.

There's no need for multiplication because we can add things over and over again.

Nyet, try matrices! No matter how much addition you do it never equals the process of multiplication.

Again you talk from a computer perspective and the question is WHY!? This is mathematics, NOT computer science. Leave computer stuff out of this.

The most obvious analogy is the stock market. Two traders each want to buy ten thousand shares of a stock. One hand delivers his message to a courier, who drives 20 miles in NYC traffic to the exchange. The other trader uses a computer and sends his order straight to Kansas, where it is processed first. By the time the courier reaches the exchange, the price per stock has doubled and the courier can only buy 5,000 shares. Process is important. Quaterions fail.

Not in mathematics because in mathematics there are no processes like that, everything is instantanious so I again ask, why bring such irrelevant garbage up?

We are doing mathematics here. Not computer science. Keep processes and algorithms to that and out of mathematics.
