Where Did Numbers Come from?

Answer

It is speculated that the first known use of numbers dates back to around 35,000 BC in Egypt. Numbers came from tally marks that were found on bones and other artefacts, as the tally marks were used for counting elapsed time, keeping of records, number of days, etc. This therefore brought about numbers.
