๐Ÿงฎ Abacus

Table of Contents


Abacus emoji is a wooden square with beads in the center across poles. Okay, so what exactly is an abacus? Before the written number system was invented and far before the first calculator, it was used to count and track numbers. You would slide the beads on their rods to count, each line representing a different numerical place. You might see this emoji with a Personal Calcuator emoji when someone is trying to compare which calculating tool is better. Or, if you have a friend who has no idea what an Abacus is, you might be getting this emoji with a ๐Ÿ˜• Confused Face emoji asking to please explain what thia strang tool is.
