Numbers as part of Arithmetic were treated in Greece as Discrete Quantity and separated from Geometry (Continuous Quantity) within the Quadrivium. Each of the numbers between 1-10 acquired symbolic associations through number symbolism.
 
In China
the unequal numbers are masculine = 1 + 3+ 5+ 7 + 9 = 25.
the equal numbers are feminine= 2 + 4 +6 +8 + 10= 30.
