IMPORTANT FACTS AND FORMULAE
I..Numeral
: In Hindu Arabic system, we use ten symbols 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9
called
digits
to represent any number.
A group of digits, denoting a number is called a
numeral.
We represent a number, say 689745132 as shown below :

We read it as : 'Sixtyeight crores, ninetyseven lacs, fortyfive thousand, one hundred
and thirtytwo'.

Place Value or Local Value of a Digit in a Numeral
:
In the above numeral :
Place value of 2 is (2 x 1) = 2; Place value of 3 is (3 x 10) = 30;
Place value of 1 is (1 x 100) = 100 and so on.
Place value of 6 is 6 x 10
8
= 600000000
III.Face Value
: The
face
value
of a digit in a numeral is the value of the
digit itself
at whatever place it may be. In the above numeral, the face value of 2 is 2; the face value
of 3 is 3 and so on.
IV.TYPES OF NUMBERS
1.Natural Numbers
: Counting numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5,.
.... are called
natural
numbers.
2
.
Whole Numbers
: All counting numbers together with zero form the set of
whole
numbers
.
Thus,
(i)
0 is the only whole number which is not a natural number.
(ii)
Every natural number is a whole number.
3
.
Integers
: All natural numbers, 0 and negatives of counting numbers
i.e.,
{…,  3 ,  2 ,  1 , 0, 1, 2, 3,….
.} together form the set of integers.
(i)
Positive Integers
: {1, 2, 3, 4, ….
.} is the set of all positive integers.
(ii)
Negative Integers
:
{
1,  2,  3,….
.} is the set of all negative integers.
(iii)
NonPositive and NonNegative Integers
: 0 is neither positive nor
negative. So, {0, 1, 2, 3,….} represents the set of nonnegative integers, while
{0,  1 ,  2 ,  3 , ….
.} represents the set of nonpositive integers.
4.
Even Numbers :
A number divisible by 2 is called an even number, e.g., 2, 4, 6, 8,
10, etc.
5.
Odd Numbers :
A number not divisible by 2 is called an odd number. e.g., 1, 3, 5, 7,
9, 11, etc.
6.
Prime Numbers :
A number greater than 1 is called a prime number, if it has exactly
two factors, namely 1 and the number itself.
Prime numbers upto 100 are : 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31, 37, 41, 43,
47,
53, 59, 61, 67, 71, 73, 79, 83, 89, 97.

View Full DocumentPrime numbers Greater than 100 : Letp be a given number greater than 100. To find out
whether it is prime or not, we use the following method :
Find a whole number nearly greater than the square root of p. Let k > *jp. Test whether p
is divisible by any prime number less than k. If yes, then p is not prime. Otherwise, p is
prime.
e.g,,We have to find whether 191 is a prime number or not. Now, 14 > V191.
Prime numbers less than 14 are 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13.
