2. Kuài 會 is typically large scale calculation in accountancy.

3. Jì 計 is typically calculation ultimately considered as part of a future strategy.

4. Yuè 閱 and jiǎn 簡 refers to counting as part of making a quantified survey of something.

NB: Suàn 算 refers to the carrying out of arithmetic as a mathematical operation, and this is more complicated than plain counting. As a technical mathematical term the word is pre-Buddhist. See CALCULATE
