I think it may also be useful to add some terms that are not
related to programming, but do occur in the tutorial and may
be difficult for some users.

When I first read the tutorial (years ago), I was really frightened
by the section on complex numbers. I had never heard of them, and
I did also not understand immediatly that I could skip this section.
I would have been helped then by a note that I would not need them,
and maybe even a short introduction of what they are (however, I
was 14, so I would probably not be able to understand them).

the dowry, and then pay the remainder to her father's house.
