comment List of old books that modern masters recommend
I've attempted to track down the source, however I cannot find it, but I remember reading an article that said that Shinichi Mochizuki completed Gauss' Disquisitiones Arithmeticae and I believe that directly informed his IUT theory in some way.

@LePressentiment is it possible we could chat some time tomorrow? It's just that it is a little late over here. Furthermore I want to refresh my memory and read over the questions I asked (as they were asked a while ago). Thank you for your offer of help.

@LePressentiment I'd say attempt to answer this how you feel comfortable but just bear in mind nothing too advanced as I've not got too far in my study of logic. Not to worry, I'll read up on the rules of replacement. Thanks.

@LePressentiment what is a rule of replacement? A substitution? Just answer it any way you see fit.

comment Best books for relearning precalculus maths the right way
Check here: math.stackexchange.com/questions/901846/… . You should only approach the Velleman book after you've completed a first course in precalculus, otherwise it may prove a little overwhelming.
