1 Numbers Foundation Concepts

2 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

8 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

10 7/2/2013 Numbers 10 Think about it !
