Mathematics droids were one of the three primary subgroups of first-degree droids, along with physical science droids and biological science droids. Mathematics droids were built to perform billions of calculations at incredible speeds, and were typically used in laboratories to process data or at universities to study hypermathetics. Less powerful mathematics droids were sold as accounting droids, which were used by businesses and households. The simple customer service software installed on the droids did not help dispel the class's image as dour data pushers.
