Counting is the mathematical 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 an injective function from the remaining objects to the natural numbers starting from two). Counting is also used (primarily by children) to demonstrate knowledge of the number names and the number system. (In mathematics the term counting or enumeration also means finding the number of elements of a finite set.)
