Quick Question...

This has been bothering me for a while now. Why is that wizards and witches don't know numbers? Arthur Weasley can't even use regular money because he doesn't understand the number system. Does the wizarding world not use numbers? Which I know isn't true because they keep score in qudditich. And don't they take arithmancy classes? What kind of math are they using if they aren't using a muggle's number system.

Another thing that bothers me is how they aren't required to attend school till they're 11. My problem with this is, how is it that they learn all their writing and grammar rules? It seems like they are expected to be taught everything by their parents, then start year one at Hogwarts and be able to write long essays. It doesn't make sense to me at all.

Can anyone here explain it to me?
