Hi,

Just as multiplication is repeated addition, addition is repeated increment.

For example, [3+n = ((n++)++)++], i.e (3+n) is n incremented three times.

Where can I read about this? What keywords to use while searching?

Thanks for help.

I'm not sure I know the exact answer to yiur question, but you may want to read about Peano's axioms. It seems a bit related to your question.
