# Arithmetic

This is Chinese radical number 12 bā . In this instance, it means to divide. There are four bā. I don’t know what the actual size of the rod is. However, if you measure across the top, and then measure across what looks like a notch at the bottom, you will see that the top is roughly four times the width of the marked point.
