Webster’s Unabridged Dictionary states that the word Quantitative can have varied meanings. For our purposes, we will look at only two:

(Math.) The resolving of problems by reducing the conditions that are in them to equations.
(Logic) The tracing of things to their source, and the resolving of knowledge into its original principles.
