Abacus is a tool to perform basic mathematical operations like addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. The tool contains one horizontal bar and usually 13 or 17 vertical rods with movable beads. Each vertical rod has one bead of value five above the horizontal bar and four beads of value one each below horizontal bar.
