What does potsherd mean?
A potsherd is a piece of broken pottery, usually discarded by its owner. The style and ornamentation of pottery changed over time and in different geographic regions. Archaeologists can tell a great deal about ethnicity, population density, wealth, trade and much else, just by looking at potsherds found in a dig.
Asked in Yiddish
What does the yiddish word chaynick mean?
I think you're referring to TCHY-nik. If so, that's literally a small piece of china or pottery. You probably heard it as part of an exclamation like "Hahk mir nisht kain TCHYnik !" Literally, that outburst means "Don't hit me a small piece of pottery !", and it obviously loses a lot in translation. Its function in Yiddish is "For Pete's sake quit PESTERING me already !"

What does triangular number mean?
Triangluar numbers or triangle numbers are numbers formed from the summation of all the numbers smaller than them. The first few triangle numbers are 1,3,6,10,15,21... If you think of a pyramid with a base of two blocks, and one on top, there are three blocks. If you add a base of three to that pyramid, you have six blocks. Then ten, and fifteen and so on. That is why they are called Triangle numbers.

What does 'Zero' and 'one' are the only numbers that are written the same in any base mean?
This refers to numbers written in base-2, base-3, etc. The lowest number that can be used as a base for such an "base n" calculation is 2. The first few numbers in binary are as follows (left: base-10; right: base 2): 0 = 0 1 = 1 2 = 10 3 = 11 4 = 100 As you can see, starting from the number 2, in base-2 it is written differently.
