**Natural numbers :- **These are the numbers (1, 2, 3 ...... etc) that are used for counting. in other words, all positive integers are natural numbers.

⇒ The least natural number is 1 but there is no largest natural number.

⇒ The set of natural number is denoted by N.

Thus N = {1, 2, 3 ......}

**Whole numbers** :- The set of numbers that includes all natural numbers and zero, are called whole numbers.

⇒ The set of whole numbers is denoted by W.

⇒ Whole numbers are also called as "Non-negative" integers.

**Integers** :- All the natural numbers, zero and the negatives of natural numbers called integers.

I = {...... -3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3 ......}

(i) set of negative integers = {-1, -2, -3, ......}

(ii) set of non-negative integers = {0, 1, 2, 3 ......}

(iii) set of positive integers = {1, 2, 3 ......}

(iv) set of non-positive integers = {0, -1, -2, -3 ......}

Note :- '0' is definitely a non-negative integer as well as a non-positive integer.

**Rational numbers **⇒ The numbers which can be expressed in the form of (p/q), where p and q are integers and q ≠ 0, are called rational numbers and their set is denoted by θ.

e.q. etc.. etc. are rational numbers.

⇒ The set of rational numbers encloses the set of integers and fractions.

**Representation of rational numbers as decimals** :- The decimal form of a rational number is either terminating or non-terminating.

E.g. → terminating (or finite) decimal.

→ non-terminating (or recurring) decimal.

**⇒ Irrational numbers** :- The numbers which when expressed in decimal form , neither terminating nor repeating decimals are called "Irrational numbers".

e.g. etc.

**Real numbers** :- All rational and irrational numbers together form the set of real numbers. denoted by R.

⇒ Thus every natural number, every whole number every integer, every rational number and every irrational number is a real number.

Note (i) :- The sum (or difference) of a rational and an irrational number is irrational

e.g. etc. are all irrational.

Note (ii) :- The product of a rational and an irrational number is irrational.

e.g. etc. are all irrational.

** Even and odd numbers** :- Integers divisible by 2 are called even numbers, while those which are not divisible by 2 are known as odd integers. Thus ......6, -4, -2, 0, 2, 4, 6....... etc are even integers and .......-5, -3, -1, 1, 3, 5....... etc are odd integers.

**Prime numbers** :- A number greater than 1 is called a prime number, If it has exactly two factors, namely 1 and itself.

E.g. 2, 3, 5, 7, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31, 37, 41 ......

⇒ 2 is only even number which is prime.

**Composite numbers** :- Composite numbers are the numbers greater than 1 which are not prime.

E.g. 4, 6, 9, 14, 15 etc.

Note :- 1 is neither prime nor composite. There are 25 prime numbers between numbers 1 and 100.

⇒ Test for prime numbers:- Let x be a given number and let 'k' be an integer, such that k

If x is not divisible by any prime number less than k then x is prime, otherwise. it is not prime.

** Co-prime numbers** :- Two numbers are Co-prime, if their H.C.F. (Highest common factor) is 1.

⇒ (2, 3), (3, 13), (5, 7) etc. are Co- Prime numbers.

**Test of Divisibility**

(i) Divisibility by 2 :- A number is divisible by 2 if its unit digit is any of 0, 2, 4, 6, 8.

(ii) Divisibility by 3 :- A number is Divisible by 3 only when the sum of its digits is divisible by 3.

(iii) Divisibility by 9 :- A number is divisible by 9 only when the sum of its digits is divisible by 9.

(iv) Divisibility by 4 :- A number is divisible by 4 is the sum of its last two digits is divisible by 4.

(v) Divisibility by 8 :- A number is divisible by 8 if the last three digits of the given number is divisible by 8.

(vi) Divisibility by 10 :- A number is divisible by 10 only when its unit digit is 0.

(vii) Divisibility by 5 :- A number is divisibility by 5 only when its unit digit is 0 or 5.

(viii) Divisibility by 11 :- A number is divisible by 11 if the difference between the sum of its digits at odd places and the sum of its digits at even places is either 0 or a number divisible by 11.

(ix) Divisibility by 12 :- A number is divisible by 12 only when it is divisible by 4 and 3 both at the same time.

(x) Divisibility by 15 :- A number is divisible by 15 only when it is divisible by 3 and 5 both in same time.

**⇒ Remainder rules** :-

Rule 1 :- If a number N is divisible by D then the product of N with any other integral number k, is also divisible by D.

i.e. if → Remainder 0 ⇒ then → Remainder => 0

Rule 2 :- If N_{1} and N_{2} two different numbers are divisible by D individually then their sum (i.e. N_{1} + N_{2}) and their difference (N_{1} - N_{2}) is also divisible by D.

Rule 3 :- If a number N_{1} is divisible by N_{2} and N_{2} is divisible by N_{3} then N_{1} must be divisible by N_{3}.

Rule 4 :- If two numbers N_{1} and N_{2} are such that they divide mutually each other it means they are same i.e. N_{1} = N_{2} only.

⇒ In general we use four terms for the divisibility

or Dividend = (Divisor × Quotient) + Remainder.

**(2) The remainder concepts :-**

a) Remainder of the expression is equal to remainder of expression

Where a_{r} is remainder of

b_{r} is remainder of

c_{r} is remainder of

* Remainder of is always 1 where 'P' is a prime number.

**(3) Counting the number of zeroes in a number or in a factorial :-**

a) When we are asked to count number of zeroes in a number, here basically we have to count number of fives [5].

Example → Find number of zero in term 5 × 4 × 3 × 2 × 1

Here no. of five (5) are 1. So no. of zeroes will be 1.

b) When we are asked to count no. of zeroes in a factorial, just follow a simple formula.

no. of zeroes =

Example → Count number of zeroes in 10!

Using formula →

⇒ 2 + 0

Here second term is taken as zero, because after division we will not get a whole number.

So number of zeroes are = 2

(i) System of division →

Terminology : Divisor → 7, Dividend → 43, Quotient → 6, Remainder → 1

Dividend = (divisor × quotient) + remainder.
