Nonsense
An excellent example of why general purpose dictionaries should not be used to give definitions of mathematical terms. Distinctness in mathematics is not a numerical property. In geometry one refers to distinct points as ones which do not coincide. Maps with the same domain are distinct if they do not agree at some input. I could go on and on in this vein but I think my point is made. Mathematics is concerned with much more than just numerical properties and an all purpose term like this can not be restricted in this way. Bill Cherowitzo (talk) 04:59, 21 December 2016 (UTC)
 @Wcherowi: I removed the reference and put the old definition back. You made your point. However the information in the article might still be incorrect. Feel free to (go on and on and) improve the article with correct information. = ] VeniVidiVicipedia (talk) 11:01, 21 December 2016 (UTC)
