Explain The Main Differences Among Integers Rational Numbers Real Numbers And Irrational Numbers How Are These Used In Everyday Life How Would You Explain The Use Of Each To Someone Who Did Not

Have you ever thought how this world of mathematics would be without irrational numbers? If the great Pythagorean hyppasus or any other mathematician would have not ever thought of such numbers?  Before ,understanding the development of irrational numbers ,we should understand what these numbers originally are and who discovered them? In mathematics, an irrational number is any real number that cannot be expressed as a ratio a/b, where a and b are integers and b is non-zero. Irrational numbers...

Rational Number

Counting Number : Is number we can use for counting things: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, ... (and so on). Does not include zero; does not include negative numbers; does not include fraction (such as 6/7 or 9/7); does not include decimals (such as 0.87 or 1.9) Whole numbers : The numbers {0, 1, 2, 3, ...} There is no fractional or decimal part; and no negatives: 5, 49 and 980. Integers : Include the negative numbers AND the whole numbers. Example: {..., -3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3, ...} Rational numbers: It can...

Real Numbers

------------------------------------------------- Real number In mathematics, a real number is a value that represents a quantity along a continuum, such as 5 (an integer), 3/4 (a rational number that is not an integer), 8.6 (a rational number expressed in decimal representation), and π (3.1415926535..., an irrational number). As a subset of the real numbers, the integers, such as 5, express discrete rather than continuous quantities. Complex numbers include real numbers as a special case. Real numbers can be divided into rational numbers...

The Real Number System

THE REAL NUMBER SYSTEM The real number system evolved over time by expanding the notion of what we mean by the word “number.” At first, “number” meant something you could count, like how many sheep a farmer owns. These are called the natural numbers, or sometimes the counting numbers. Natural Numbers or “Counting Numbers” 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, . . . * The use of three dots at the end of the list is a common mathematical notation to indicate that the list keeps going forever. At some point, the...

Real Number

mathematics, a real number is a value that represents a quantity along a continuous line. The real numbers include all the rational numbers, such as the integer −5 and the fraction 4/3, and all the irrational numbers such as √2 (1.41421356... the square root of two, an irrational algebraic number) and π (3.14159265..., a transcendental number). Real numbers can be thought of as points on an infinitely long line called the number line or real line, where the points corresponding to integers are equally...

The Number Devil

The Number Devil The Number Devil - A Mathematical Adventure, by Hans Magnus Enzensberger, begins with a young boy named Robert who suffers from reoccurring nightmares. Whether he’s getting slurped up by a giant fish, sliding down an endless slide into a black hole, or falling into a raging river, his incredibly detailed dreams always seem to have a negative effect on him. Robert’s nightmares either frighten him, make him angry, or disappoint him. His one wish is to never dream again; however,...

Rational Number

RATIONAL NUMBERS In mathematics, a rational number is any number that can be expressed as the quotient or fraction p/q of two integers, with the denominator q not equal to zero. Since q may be equal to 1, every integer is a rational number. The set of all rational numbers is usually denoted by a boldface Q  it was thus named in 1895 byPeano after quoziente, Italian for "quotient". The decimal expansion of a rational number always either terminates after a finite number of digits or begins to repeat the...

Complex and Imaginary Numbers

of “Complex and Imaginary Numbers” and its applications. I chose the topic “Complex and Imaginary Numbers” because I am interested in mathematics that is hard to be pictured in your mind, unlike geometry or equations. An imaginary number is the square root of a negative number. That is why they are called imaginary, what René Descartes called them, because he thought such a number could not exist. In this paper, I will discuss how complex numbers and imaginary numbers were discovered, the interesting...

Pythagoras: a Universe Made of Numbers

Pythagoras: A Universe made of Numbers PART 1 – Pythagoras & His Philosophy Pythagoras of Samos is often described as the first pure mathematician. He is an extremely important figure in the development of mathematics yet there is relatively little known about his mathematical achievements. Unlike many later Greek mathematicians, where at least we have some of the books which they wrote, there is nothing of Pythagoras's writings. The society which he led, half religious and half scientific...
