7/2/2013 Numbers 2 The Real Numbers The number line Numbers 2 e 3.14 = 2 - The set of real numbers is called R 22 7 = 3.14 = … … Repeating group 5 Binary Relations

3
7/2/2013 Numbers 3 The Real Numbers Is there always a number between a and b ? Numbers a b a + b 2 Average of a and b is midway between a and b After b, what is the next real number? Question:

4
7/2/2013 Numbers 4 The Natural Numbers The Set of Counting Numbers N = { 1, 2, 3, 4, … } The Integers Positive and Negative Natural Numbers I = { … -3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3, … } Subsets of the Real Numbers … and Zero Binary Relations

5
7/2/2013 Numbers 5 Rational Numbers Solutions of linear equations a x + b = 0 for integers a, b Proper fractions and integers Subsets of the Real Numbers Q = { | a, b are integers, b ≠ 0 } a b

6
7/2/2013 Numbers 6 Irrational Numbers Not solutions of a x + b = 0 Algebraic numbers – roots of n th degree polynomials with rational coefficients Examples: x 2 – 2 = 0 x 3 – 5 = 0 Transcendental numbers Subsets of the Real Numbers { x | x R, x Q } x = 2 + – 3 5

7
7/2/2013 Numbers 7 Irrational Numbers Not solutions of a x + b = 0 Transcendental numbers – Examples: = … e = … Subsets of the Real Numbers { x | x R, x Q } NOT roots of any polynomial with rational coefficients

7/2/2013 Numbers 8 Scientific Notation Standard notation – – Scientific notation x – x x 10 – 4 – x 10 – 1

9
7/2/2013 Numbers 9 General form For real number r, scientific notation is r = c x 10 n where n is an integer and 1 ≤ Constant c usually a single-digit integer Scientific Notation c < 10
