The Yalkut ילקוט שמעוני relates to us, how a particular Amora – ר’ ברכיה – counted up the cows- The פרי החג – to arrive at the correct 70 number….
It would seem we are being introduced to a mathematical method to count up consecutive numbers, commonly referred to as “The Gauss Trick”. Indeed that is the explanation given by the זית רענן (commentary on the page).
Could it be, that we are actually be given an insight into the Karbanos themselves?
