**1.1 – Real Numbers, Number Operations**

2
**Most things in math and life we work with are real numbers **

We can divide real numbers into two categories; Rational Irrational

3
**Rational vs. Irrational**

Rational = a number that may be written as a ratio of integers AND decimals that terminate or repeat Types of Rational Numbers 1) Integers (no decimals, positive and negatives); -27, 3, 0, 45 2) Whole Numbers (no decimals, only zero and positives); 0, 1, 2,…, 100

4
Irrational Irrational = cannot be written as ratio of integers AND decimals that terminate/repeat Most common irrational number? Others; √2, √14

5
**Real Numbers on Number Line**

Recall from Algebra 1, we can represent the real numbers and their values using a number line On a number line, we use “0” as a place marker; negatives to the left, positives to the right

6
**Example. Plot the following numbers on a number line.**

-2/5, 5, 10, 0, -2

7
**Comparing Real Numbers**

With real numbers, we can compare their values using inequality symbols Read an inequality like you read a book; left to right < = less than > = greater than ≥ = greater than OR equal to ≤ = less than OR equal to

8
**Example. Compare the following pairs of numbers using one of the four inequality symbols**

D) 0, 50

9
Example. Graph the following numbers on a number line, then put them in order from least to greatest. -6, 3, -3, 4, -14, 0, 9

10
**Addition and Multiplication Properties**

With the real numbers, we have several properties for addition and multiplication You use these all the time, but probably forgot their “technical” names

11
**Addition Commutative Associative Identity Inverse a + (-a) = 0**

a + b = b + a Associative (a + b) + c = a + (b + c) Identity a + 0 = a, 0 + a = a Inverse a + (-a) = 0 Key Words; addition, sum

12
**Multiplication Commutative Associative Identity a(1) = a Inverse**

ab = ba Associative (ab)c = a(bc) Identity a(1) = a Inverse a(1/a) = 1 (a cannot = 0) Key words; product

13
**Subtraction/Division**

Subtraction is just like adding; just add the opposite a – b = a + (-b) Key words; difference Division is multiplication by the reciprocal a/b = a(1/b) Key words; quotient

14
**Example. Identify the following properties**

B) 3 x 1 = 3 C) = 4 D) (6 x 3) x 9 = 6 x (3 x 9) E) 4(9 + 2) = 4x9 + 4x2

15
**Example. Perform the operation to answer the question.**

What is the sum of 4 and 21? What is the product of 10 and -6? What is the quotient of 7 and 1?
