And to do that. Each of the following is a rational number: The set of all numbers x such that x is an odd natural number less than 9. In order to fill in the remaining numbers on the number line. We can easily write another name for this set using roster notation. Do Exercises 5 and 6.

Roster notation: Answers 4. Set-builder notation is used to specify conditions under which a number is in a set. Name the set consisting of the first seven odd whole numbers using both roster notation and set-builder notation. These points correspond to what are called irrational numbers. They cannot be represented as the quotient of two integers.

The real-number line has a point for every rational number. No rational number can be multiplied by itself to get 2. Recall that decimal notation for rational numbers either terminates or has a repeating block of digits. The decimal notation for an irrational number neither terminates nor repeats. It is also the number that. We say that 1. Real numbers: The set of all rational numbers. Negative integers: Whole numbers: Given the numbers Irrational numbers: Every point on the number line represents some real number and every real number is represented by some point on the number line.

Note that. The answer is. For any two numbers on the line. Every true inequality yields another true inequality if we interchange the numbers or variables and reverse the direction of the inequality sign. If x is a negative real number. Answers 8. Insert 6 or 7 for sentence.

These are inequalities. If x is a positive real number. The graph consists of 2 as well as the numbers less than 2. We shade all numbers to the left of 2 and use a bracket at 2 to indicate that it is also a solution. Numbers in this set include. True The solutions consist of all real numbers greater than. A graph of an inequality is a drawing that represents its solution set.

Write true or false. Graph each inequality. The set of all solutions is called the solution set. Exercises 25—28 are on the following page. Write a different inequality with the same meaning. We indicate this by using a parenthesis at. False A replacement that makes it true is called a solution. Answers Match each inequality with one of the graphs shown below.

Since distance is always a nonnegative number.

If a number is negative. The distance from 6 to 0 is 6. We call the distance of a number from 0 on the number line the absolute value of the number. Find the absolute value. If a number is positive or zero. The absolute value of 6 is 6.

The set of all rational numbers The set of all real numbers greater than. Name the rational numbers. Name the real numbers. The set of all negative integers greater than. Name the natural numbers. Use set-builder notation to name each set.

Name the whole numbers. Name the integers. Name the irrational numbers.
