Numbers

Numbers are used for calculating and counting.

These counting numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, .......... are called natural numbers

In order to describe the number of elements in a collection with no objects, we use the symbol ‘0’ called zero.

The number ‘0’ together with the natural numbers gives us the numbers 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, …………… which are called whole numbers.

We know,

In order to represent any numbers, we use ten symbols 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9. These ten symbols are called digits or figures.

A group of digits denoting a number is called a numeral.

For example, 1237, 70156, 100758 etc. are numerals.`

Note:

Hereafter, we shall be using the words, number and numeral, as the same thing.

The method of representing a number in digits or figures is called notation.

Numeration is known as the method of expressing a number in words.

Thus in numbers we will learn how to read and write large numbers, comparison of numbers, estimation etc.......

Numbers play an important role in our daily life. We use them to count objects. We use them to arrange objects or collection in order. In this chapter, we will learn how to count or calculate to solve problems in our daily life. We shall also learn how to recognize, compare, order of numbers, make of numbers using digit, estimation of numbers.
