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
