MAT 300 Awtrey MATHEMATICS AND STATISTICS 1 / 28 Section 11 Ordered Fields Axioms The set R can be described as a complete ordered field. Complete means there are no gaps in R . MAT 300 Awtrey MATHEMATICS AND STATISTICS 1 / 28 Section 11 Ordered Fields Axioms The set R can be described as a complete ordered field. Complete means there are no gaps in R . Ordered means that given any two real numbers x and y , either they are equal or one is bigger than the other...we can order the real numbers. MAT 300 Awtrey MATHEMATICS AND STATISTICS 1 / 28 Section 11 Ordered Fields Axioms The set R can be described as a complete ordered field. Complete means there are no gaps in R . Ordered means that given any two real numbers x and y , either they are equal or one is bigger than the other...we can order the real numbers. A field is a set where we can add, subtract, and multiply elements; and if the element is nonzero, we can divide by it.

An axiom is a property that we take as fact, without proving it.
