Real Numbers

- Rational numbers: Numbers which can be written in the form of\[\frac{p}{q}(q\ne 0)\]where p and q are integers, are called rational numbers.

- Irrational numbers: Numbers which cannot be written in the form of\[\frac{p}{q}\]where p and q are integers and\[q\ne 0\]are called irrational numbers. In other words, numbers which are not rational are called irrational numbers.
- Real numbers: The rational numbers and the irrational numbers together are called real numbers.

- Lemma: A proven statement which is used to prove another statement is called a lemma.
- Euclid's division lemma: For any two positive integers 'a' and 'b; there exist whole numbers 'q' and 'r' such that\[\text{a}=\text{bq}+\text{r},0\le \text{r}<\text{b}\].

- Algorithm: An' algorithm is a process of solving particular problems.
- Euclid's division algorithm: is used to find the greatest common divisor (G.C.D.) or Highest Common Factor (H.C.F.) of two numbers.
- Finding H.C.F. using Euclid's division algorithm: Suppose the two positive numbers are 'a' and 'b', such that a > b. Then the H.C.F. of 'a' and 'b' can be found by following the steps given:
- Apply the division lemma to find 'q' and 'r' where\[a=bq+r,0\le r<b\].
- lf\[\text{r}=0\],then H.C.F. is b. If\[\text{r}\ne \text{0}\], then apply Euclid's lemma to find 'b' and 'r'.
- Continue steps (a) and (b) till \[r=0\].The divisor at this state will be H.C.F. (a, b). Also, H.C.F. (a, b)= H.C.F. (b, r).
- Fundamental theorem of Arithmetic: Every composite number can be expressed as a unique product of prime numbers. This is also called the unique prime factorization theorem.

- If 'p' is a prime, 'a' is a positive integer, and if 'p' divides\[{{a}^{2}}\], then 'p' divides 'a'. Also, if 'p' divides\[{{a}^{3}}\], then 'p' divides 'a'.
- If 'a' is a terminating decimal, then 'a' can be expressed as \[\frac{p}{q}(q\ne 0)\], where 'p' and 'q' are co primes and the prime factorization of q is of the form \[{{2}^{m}}{{5}^{n}}\], (where m and n are whole numbers.).
- If \[\frac{p}{q}\]is a rational number and q is not of form \[{{2}^{m}}{{5}^{n}}(m,n\in W)\], then \[\frac{p}{q}\]has a non-terminating repeating decimal expansion.
- C.F. of two numbers is the product of the smallest power of each common prime factor in the numbers.
- M. of two numbers is the product of the greatest power of each prime factor involved in the numbers.
