Unformatted text preview: 13 Exploring Real Numbers (are there fake numbers?) Natural numbers 1,2,3,....... Whole numbers 0,1,2,3,..... Integers ......2,1,0,1,2,3,4,........ Rational Numbers any number that you can write in the a form b , where a and b are integers and b 0
  they can be written as decimals (6.27 or repeating 4.33 ) All integers are rational numbers because you can write any integer as a fraction (4 can be written as
4 ) 1 Name the set(s) of numbers to which each given number belongs 1) 13 2) 3.28 3)
13 25 4) 42 Irrational Numbers cannot be expressed in form b , where a and b are integers  the numbers after the decimal go on forever without any repeating a 5) True or False: All integers are rational numbers. How can we keep all these numbers straight??! Name the set(s) of numbers to which each number belongs 1) 12 2) 4.67 4) 5 Which set of numbers is most reasonable for the cost of a scooter? The number line Opposites two numbers lie the same distance from zero on a number line in opposite directions. Absolute Value Distance from 0 on the number line (always positive). 1) 5 2)  4 3)  3.7 4) 5 7 5) Simplify this expression xx + x Comparing numbers on the number line Inequality a mathematical sentence that compares the value of two things. Insert the correct symbol to make the sentence true: 1) 5  10 2) 35 1 3) 16 20 4  5 4) 3 8 1 2 Write an inequality for each phrase 5) The cost of an iPod plus the cost of a new car is more than what I make in a year. 6) Hannah needs at least five people to help her move. 7) No more than 35 people can be in this class.
