# Save the numerical agony!

Is it possible to make the physics problems stick to analytical/universal solutions (with letters and integers as much as possible) instead of nasty numerical values? Presently, a person like me without even the most basic type of calculator (on principle) spends much more time conjuring ingenius numerical approximations than focusing on the conceptual/physics part of the problem, and still too often get penalized for missing a significant digit! Granted, unit conversion and numerical computation are very much an integral part of physics -- but not necessarily of brilliance?

As a physics lover,i do agree to it.I think it's important too.
