  • The omission of "degree" indicates that it is not relative to an arbitrary reference point like the Celsius and Fahrenheit scales, but rather an absolute unit of measure which can be manipulated algebraically.

  • Leaving aside the question of how many bikes is appropriate (an easy question to answer algebraically, by the way: when x is the appropriate number and b is the number of bikes you have now, then x = b+1), the question of how many are actually on site here on North Upper is addressed in passing in a front page article in today's Lexington Herald-Leader.

  • Around 1950 Abraham Robinson was impressed that maps between algebraic structures in general seem hardly ever to be elementary, whereas some important maps (such as embeddings between two algebraically closed fields, or between two real-closed fields) turn out to be elementary.

  • The omission of "degree" indicates that it is not relative to an arbitrary reference point like the Celsius and Fahrenheit scales — both of which should have the adjective prefix "degrees" — but rather an absolute unit of measure which can be manipulated algebraically; e.g., multiplied by two to indicate twice the amount of "mean energy" available among elementary degrees of freedom of the system.
