# CLASSIFICATION OF NUMBERS

Natural Numbers : N = {1,2,3,4,……………….} Whole Numbers : W = {0,1,2,3,,……………...} Integers : Z = { …… ,-3,-2,-1,0,1,2,3,……..} Rational Numbers : Any number which can be expressed in the form p/q , where p & q are integers and q ≠0. Any Natural Number is a Rational Number. Any Whole Number is a Rational Number. Any Integer is a Rational Number. Any terminating Decimal is a Rational Number. For e.g., 0.25 = 25/100 Any recurring decimal can be converted in to the form “p/q” where p & q are integers and q≠0. Therefore, any recurring decimal is a rational Number. Irrational Numbers: Any non-terminating decimal and non recurring decimal is an irrational number. π and “e” are irrational numbers
