The Real Number System (Venn Diagram)
Fill in the names of the number types in the appropriate locations. Also, include any notes about thosenumbers that will be useful to you. Then, write each of the following numbers in the
innermost
location possible:
3,23, 5,1.75, 0.333..., 0, 9, 6,
2.4,
π
,
123

Real Number System Practice Problems
Closurea + b is a real numberab is a real numberCommutativea + b = b + aab = baAssociative(a + b) + c = a + (b + c)(ab)c = a(bc)Identitya + 0 = aa

2) Perform operations on real numbers, using the terms sum, difference, product, and quotient. Payattention to the order of numbers – when rewriting as a math expression, the first number alwaysgoes first. For example, the quotient of 8 and ¼ is written as 8
÷
¼.

a)What is the difference of –4 and 8?b)What is the product of 6 and 2/3?c)What is the quotient of 10 and ½?d)What is the sum of 3/5 and 4/6?
