**Counting** is theÂ mathematicalÂ action of

repeatedly adding (or subtracting) one,

usually to

find out how many objects there are or to

set aside a

desired number of

objects (starting

with one for the first object and proceeding with anÂ injective functionÂ from

the remaining objects to

the natural numbers starting from two), or forÂ well-orderedÂ objects, to

find theÂ ordinal numberÂ of a

particular object, or to

find the object with a

particular ordinal number.

counting is

also used (primarily by children) to

demonstrate knowledge of theÂ number namesÂ and theÂ numberÂ system. In

mathematics the term *counting* or

*enumeration* also means finding the number of

elements of aÂ finiteÂ set.)

To

dream of

counting your children,

and they are merry and sweet-looking,

denotes that you will have no

trouble in

controlling them,

and they will attain honorable places. To

dream of

counting money,

you will be

lucky and always able to

pay your debts;

but to

count out money to

another person,

you will meet with loss of

some kind.

such will be

the case, also, in

counting other things. If

for yourself, good; if

for others,

usually bad luck will attend you.Â Â
