"Numbers" as in the mathematical term? or "numbers" as in performances?

Different "one" meaning a different "number"?

In between meaning location? time? sequence?

Missed the answer to this question..."Numbers" as in the mathematical term? or "numbers" as in performances?

Room numbers? A numbering system of a sequence of objects? Are the numbers sequentual? Whole numbers? Integers? Decimals? Dewey decimal system?

Is it correct to say that, if A is the first number and B the second, B = A + 1?
Does arithmetic make sense on these numbers? (For example, on phone numbers it doesn't really make sense, as you don't obtain anything relevant from adding or substracting phone numbers, or adding a constant to a phone number)
And another idea... are they serial numbers? Money serials, or whatever they are called?

Is it significant that the two numbers are consecutive? Or is it just a random sequence of 3 numbers and the first and last happen to be consecutive?
Do the numbers serve a purpose? If so:
Identification?
Decoration?
A brand name of some kind?
Do they give information, like a date?

Are there more than one of these bread-sized metal objects? If so, does each one have a different sequence of three numbers? In each sequence, are the first and last consectuive? Do they indicate a quantity in any way?
On another tack...Is the bread-sized metal thing part of a piece of machinery? Does it serve a useful function? Or is it just decorative?
