http://www.jamesbrennan.org/algebra/numbers/real_number_system.htm

Extractions: The real number system evolved over time by expanding the notion of what we mean by the word number. At first, number meant something you could count, like how many sheep a farmer owns. These are called the natural numbers , or sometimes the counting numbers or Counting Numbers At some point, the idea of zero came to be considered as a number. If the farmer does not have any sheep, then the number of sheep that the farmer owns is zero. We call the set of natural numbers plus the number zero the whole numbers Natural Numbers together with zero What is zero? Is it a number? How can the number of nothing be a number? Is zero nothing, or is it something? Well, before this starts to sound like a Zen koan, lets look at how we use the numeral 0. Arab and Indian scholars were the first to use zero to develop the place-value number system that we use today. When we write a number, we use only the ten numerals 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9. These numerals can stand for ones, tens, hundreds, or whatever depending on their position in the number. In order for this to work, we have to have a way to mark an empty place in a number, or the place values wont come out right. This is what the numeral 0 does. Think of it as an empty container, signifying that that place is empty. For example, the number 302 has 3 hundreds, no tens, and 2 ones.

4. Number System Conversion - Explanation
Our decimal number system is known as a positional number system, because the value of the number depends on the position of the digits.
http://www.cstc.org/data/resources/60/convexp.html

Extractions: Our decimal number system is known as a positional number system, because the value of the number depends on the position of the digits. For example, the number has a very different value than the number , although the same digits are used in both numbers. (Although we are accustomed to our decimal number system, which is positional, other ancient number systems, such as the Egyptian number system were not positional, but rather used many additional symbols to represent larger values.) In a positional number system, the value of each digit is determined by which place it appears in the full number. The lowest place value is the rightmost position, and each successive position to the left has a higher place value. In our decimal number system, the rightmost position represents the "ones" column, the next position represents the "tens" column, the next position represents "hundreds", etc. Therefore, the number represents hundred and tens and ones, whereas the number

Extractions: Topic Tree Home Following are some of the different number systems discussed in the history of mathematics. Contents of this Page The Number Sense Quipu - An Inca Counting System Fractions of Ancient Egypt The Mayan Number System ... Where Did Numbers Originate? The Number Sense The number sense is not the ability to count, but the ability to recognize that something has changes in a small collection. Some animal species are capable of this. The number of young that the mother animal has, if changed, will be noticed by all mammals and most birds. Mammals have more developed brains and raise fewer young than other species, but take better care of their young for a much longer period of time. Many birds have a good number sense. If a nest contains four eggs, one can safely be taken, but when two are removed the bird generally deserts. The bird can distinguish two from three. An experiment done with a goldfinch showed the ability to distinguish piles of seed: three from one, three from two, four from two, four from three, and six from three. The goldfinch almost always confused five and four, seven and five, eight and six, and ten and six. Another experiment involved a squire who was trying to shoot a crow which made its nest in the watchtower of his estate. The squire tried to surprise the crow, but at his approach, the crow would leave, watch from a distance, and not come back until the man left the tower. The squire then took another man with him to the tower. One man left and the other stayed to get the crow when it returned to the nest, but the crow was not deceived. The crow stayed away until the other man came out. The experiment was repeated the next day with three men, but the crow would not return to the nest. The following day, four men tried, but it was not until that next day with five men that the crow returned to the nest with one man still in the tower.

Natural numbers are the numbers 1, 2, 3, ... . All natural numbers are integers, but also 0, -1, -2, ... . Rational numbers are fractions p/q where q is non-zero and p and q are both integer. For example, all integers are rational (pick q =1). Other examples of rational numbers are Without getting technical, real numbers are all numbers that can be written as a possibly never repeating decimal fraction. For example, all rational numbers are real. Their decimal representations do repeat. Decimal fractions whose representation do not repeat are irrational.

Extractions: Computer uses the binary system. Any physical system that can exist in two distinct states (e.g., 0-1, on-off, hi-lo, yes-no, up-down, north-south, etc.) has the potential of being used to represent numbers or characters. A binary digit is called a bit . There are two possible states in a bit, usually expressed as and 1. A series of eight bits strung together makes a byte , much as 12 makes a dozen. With 8 bits, or 8 binary digits, there exist 2^ =256 possible combinations. The following table shows some of these combinations. (The number enclosed in parentheses represents the decimal equivalent.) =1024 is commonly referred to as a "K". It is approximately equal to one thousand. Thus, 1 Kbyte is 1024 bytes. Likewise, 1024K is referred to as a "Meg". It is approximately equal to a million. 1 Mega byte is 1024*1024=1,048,576 bytes. If you remember that 1 byte equals one alphabetical letter, you can develop a good feel for size. You may regard each digit as a box that can hold a number. In the binary system, there can be only two choices for this number either a "0" or a "1". In the octal system, there can be eight possibilities:

Extractions: Sites for parents Abacus abacus to the Phoenician abak (sand). American Heritage Dictionary points to the Greek word abax , which might have originated from Hebrew avak (dust). There is little doubt that Ancients used a flat surface with sand strewn evenly over it as a disposable tool for writing and counting. It's said that the great Archimedes was slain by a Roman soldier while concentrating on figures drawn in sand. Later day abaci had grooves for small pebbles and later yet wires or rods on which counters could freely move back and forth. Each wire corresponded to a digit in a positional number system , commonly in base 10. A very curious state of affairs was mentioned by M. Gardner with a reference to K.Menninger. For more than 15 centuries the Greek and Romans and then Europeans in the Middle Ages and early Renaissance calculated on devices with authentic place-value system in which zero was represented by an empty line, wire or groove. Yet the written notations did not have a symbol for zero until it was borrowed by Arabs from Hindus and eventually introduced into Europe in 1202 by Leonardo Fibonacci of Piza in his Liber Abaci The Book of Abacus ). According to D. Knuth, counting with abaci was so convenient and easy that, at the time when only few knew how to write, it might have seemed preposterous to scribble some symbols on expensive papyrus when an excellent calculating device was readily available.

http://www-groups.dcs.st-and.ac.uk/~history/HistTopics/Greek_numbers.html

Extractions: Version for printing There were no single Greek national standards in the first millennium BC. since the various island states prided themselves on their independence. This meant that they each had their own currency, weights and measures etc. These in turn led to small differences in the number system between different states since a major function of a number system in ancient times was to handle business transactions. However we will not go into sufficient detail in this article to examine the small differences between the system in separate states but rather we will look at its general structure. We should say immediately that the ancient Greeks had different systems for cardinal numbers and ordinal numbers so we must look carefully at what we mean by Greek number systems. Also we shall look briefly at some systems proposed by various Greek mathematicians but not widely adopted. The first Greek number system we examine is their acrophonic system which was use in the first millennium BC. 'Acrophonic' means that the symbols for the numerals come from the first letter of the number name, so the symbol has come from an abreviation of the word which is used for the number. Here are the symbols for the numbers 5, 10, 100, 1000, 10000.

Extractions: This project was a joint social studies and maths activity. To begin with students had to research into the number systems of the ancient Egyptians Egyptians 2 Babylonians Babylonians 2 ... Arabs , and Hindus . There is also an article History of Numbers from The Encyclopedia Britannica This research was done during the library periods, and students continued to work on the project during their maths lessons where they were able to access the Internet from the classroom computer. Students had to explain how the systems are similar and how they differ. As well as the compulsory number systems, some students chose to research origins of their own number systems and many of them also chose to look at the Mayan system , as the Maya is a topic we study during social studies later in the year. Following on from this, students had to create their own number systems, showing symbols up to 1.000,000 and explaining the advantages and disadvantages of their systems. Here is a selection of the students' projects which they have recently completed. Click on the name of the students to visit their pages or follow the arrow for a "guided tour" of our projects.

http://www.danbbs.dk/~erikoest/binary.htm

Extractions: Bottom of This Page Binary Number System The Binary Number Base Systems Most modern computer systems (including the IBM PC) operate using binary logic. The computer represents values using two voltage levels (usually 0V for logic and either +3.3 V or +5V for logic 1). With two levels we can represent exactly two different values. These could be any two different values, but by convention we use the values zero and one. These two values, coincidentally, correspond to the two digits used by the binary number system. Since there is a correspondence between the logic levels used by the computer and the two digits used in the binary numbering system, it should come as no surprise that computers employ the binary system. The binary number system works like the decimal number system except the Binary Number System: The weighted values for each position is determined as follows: In the United States among other countries, every three decimal digits is separated with a comma to make larger numbers easier to read. For example, 123,456,789 is much easier to read and comprehend than 123456789. We will adopt a similar convention for binary numbers. To make binary numbers more readable, we will add a space every four digits starting from the least significant digit on the left of the decimal point. For example, the binary value 1010111110110010 will be written 1010 1111 1011 0010.

Our decimal or base ten number system is a place-value system. This means that the place or location where you put a numeral determines its corresponding numerical value. (This is analogous to braille codes in that the place you put a cell sometimes determines its meaning.) A two in the one's place means two times one or two. A two in the one-thousand's place means two times one thousand or two thousand. Figure 1 shows the place values for the first six whole number places in the decimal system.

Egypt The Ancient Egyptian number system (Math), A Feature Tour Egypt Story.
http://www.touregypt.net/featurestories/numbers.htm

Extractions: By Caroline Seawright In ancient Egypt mathematics was used for measuring time, straight lines, the level of the Nile floodings, calculating areas of land, counting money, working out taxes and cooking. Maths was even used in mythology - the Egyptians figured out the numbers of days in the year with their calendar . They were one of the ancient peoples who got it closest to the 'true year', though their mathematical skills. Maths was also used with fantastic results for building tombs, pyramids and other architectural marvels. A part of the largest surviving mathematical scroll, the Rhind Papyrus (written in hieratic script), asks questions about the geometry of triangles. It is, in essence, a mathematical text book. The surviving parts of the papyrus show how the Egyptian engineers calculated the proportions of pyramids as well as other structures. Originally, this papyrus was five meters long and thirty three centimeters high. It is again to the Nile Valley that we must look for evidence of the early influence on Greek mathematics. With respect to geometry, the commentators are unanimous: the mathematician-priests of the Nile Valley knew no peer. The geometry of Pythagoras, Eudoxus, Plato, and Euclid was learned in Nile Valley temples. Four mathematical papyri still survive, most importantly the Rhind mathematical papyrus dating to 1832 B.C. Not only do these papyri show that the priests had mastered all the processes of arithmetic, including a theory of number, but had developed formulas enabling them to find solutions of problems with one and two unknowns, along with "think of a number problems." With all of this plus the arithmetic and geometric progressions they discovered, it is evident that by 1832 B.C., algebra was in place in the Nile Valley.
