Very Big Numbers

I like science very much, I like maths very much (that doesn't mean I am particularly good at it) and it fascinates me the way encryption works.

Here is a really interesting video about how on line banking keeps your information safe. I have subscribed to this channel for only a little while so am still discovering new videos. They explain quite complex topics very well I think.

Really interesting. I can't pretend to have understood all of it (I was always rubbish at maths) but it was enjoyable to watch.

It sounded interesting but I'm afraid I was lost at the beginning

I did laugh when I read this.

Some of their other video's I find confusing too and I have to look up the meanings of words that they use which have specific mathematical meanings. That does make things a bit easier.

Some of their videos are really interesting - on subjects like "Is Zero Even" or "Is zero a Prime number" they are very understandable.
