Number Sets , Set & Interval Notes Number Set Symbol Definition Real A real number is a value that can be represented as a quantity on a continuous number line . Rational A rational number is any quantity that can be expressed as the ratio of two integers . Ex: 4 (since 4 = 8 2 ) , 1.2 (since 1.2 = 12 10 = 6 5 ) , - 9 (since 9 = 3 = 3 1 , etc . Irrational An irrational number is any quantity that can NOT be expressed as a fraction (any nonrepeating & nonterminating decimal) Ex: π , e , 2 Integers The set of integers contains whole numbers , negative whole numbers and zero . {… -3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3 …} Whole Whole numbers are nonnegative integers { 0, 1, 2, 3 …} Natural Natural numbers are positive integers . This set is commonly referred to as the “counting” numbers set . { 1, 2, 3 …} Digits A digit is any number that can be found in a phone number . { 0, 1, 2 9 }

Example: { 5, 7, 11 } is a set . But we can also "build" a set by describing what is in it . Here is a simple example of set - builder notation: ex

The numbers are the endpoints of the interval . *Parentheses and/or brackets are used to show whether the endpoints are excluded or included . Parentheses , ( ) , indicate a quantity is_________________________ . Brackets , [ ] , indicate a quantity is____________________________ . When using infinity or negative infinity always use_____________________________ .

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
