Ian analyzes the data received by the aliens and shares his discovery with Louise. He visualizes the data and expresses as a decimal the amount of data relative to negative space: 0.0833, which he says is equivalent to 1/12. The two present their findings to the rest of the team and suggest that they are part of a larger whole.
Louise's daughter asks her for the technical term of a deal in which both sides can win, and Louise does not recall the term at the time. Louise's team has a discussion about their findings on alien data, and they realize that there are 12 total groups, each with a different set of data. They will need to share data with the other groups in order to obtain the full set of data, which they determine is a non-zero-sum game. Louise then recalls the technical term for a win-win situation and relays it to her daughter.
