how do u define a number?
anonymous
  • anonymous
I believe also that 1 is a number , http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1_(number) (I prefer wikipedia to answer this) ;)

This is the first thing ever you learnt in mathematics: 1

Number is a mathematical thing which is used to count ....

1 is a quantity. A quantity is a number. Q.E.D
anonymous
  • anonymous
lol May I know @UnkleRhaukus is this exactly what you are asking for?
amriju
  • amriju
then by definition...1 is a number...what made u strike the question though...?
ParthKohli
  • ParthKohli
Axiom: number + number = another number Axiom 2: 4 is a number Axiom 3: 5 is a number Combining the axioms, 1 + 4 = 5 Q.E.D.

How many demonstrations do you need?

Accept it: 1 is a number because it is in the NumPad. :D
anonymous

^ This is the perfect use of number : Quest. "How many demonstrations u need?" Answer : "1"

say, there are a number of objects on the table , could there be zero objects on the table? could there be one object on the table?
hba
  • hba
Well It Depends Unkle Rhaukus if you talk about objects on the table :)
hba
  • hba
In Nature,You Can not say There Are Zero Objects But On A Table There Can Be No Objects :)

{{empty set}}
hba
  • hba
Well ^^ You Are wrong,thats not an empty set,it has one object :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
Correct
hba
  • hba
{ } < Empty set
anonymous
  • anonymous
So is it 1?
hba
  • hba
Well Its Not The Number 1 but it is 1 object :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
That is (a) set theory definition of 1.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Why is it worse than "1"
hba
  • hba
Well I Agree With You On That Note
anonymous
  • anonymous
Why do we need a set theory definition of 1 at all?
hba
  • hba
Well Thats Not Exactly What Is Being Asked Here :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
To answer what is being asked, you have to define "number"
hba
  • hba
But It Is Not Necessary We Talk About It With Respect To Sets :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
Define it however u like, I gave one (mathematical) definition. Do you have another definition?
UnkleRhaukus
  • UnkleRhaukus
one is an egg
anonymous
  • anonymous
"I" (as in individual)
hba
  • hba
^ dis agree ,One is One
anonymous
  • anonymous
So your proof goes, One is One, so One is a number..?
hba
  • hba
Exactly :)

1 is a symbol representing a number.....(maybe)

1 is a first natural number.
anonymous
  • anonymous
No number is less than 1...?
anonymous
  • anonymous
No natural number is less than 1...
hba
  • hba
Because 0 things cannot exist in nature :D @maheshmeghwal9
anonymous
  • anonymous
Ah, the physicists viewpoing...:-)
anonymous
  • anonymous
viewpoint*
maheshmeghwal9
  • maheshmeghwal9
but @estudier that no number is less than 1 but 0 is a whole number.
anonymous
  • anonymous
What's a whole number?
maheshmeghwal9
  • maheshmeghwal9
said*
hba
  • hba
With Respect to sets W= {0,1,2,3.....}
anonymous
  • anonymous
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whole_number Pick one...
maheshmeghwal9
  • maheshmeghwal9
{0,1......\(\infty\)}
anonymous
  • anonymous
A set containing infinity as a member.....
maheshmeghwal9
  • maheshmeghwal9
@estudier
maheshmeghwal9
  • maheshmeghwal9
a set starting from 0 to infinity
anonymous
  • anonymous
Do u mean an infinite set?
maheshmeghwal9
  • maheshmeghwal9
yes !
anonymous
  • anonymous
OK, which one?
maheshmeghwal9
  • maheshmeghwal9
which is starting from 0.
hba
  • hba
@estudier Stop Playing and get to the point :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
Natural numbers including 0
anonymous
  • anonymous
Seems we are talking about sets after all....
maheshmeghwal9
  • maheshmeghwal9
hmm ... u r confusing me @estudier
hba
  • hba
Well Natural number does not include 0
anonymous
  • anonymous
They do or don't u have to say which.....
anonymous
  • anonymous
Or u can say "positve" or "non-negative" integers....
hba
  • hba
We Can Say Non-Zero Also :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
As you like, it just has to be clear...
anonymous
  • anonymous
So, according to set theory, 1 is not a number. It is a representation of the set containing the empty set.
hba
  • hba
Would You Like To Provide Example :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
And we can define all the other "numbers" by (transfinite) induction
hba
  • hba
@estudier Can You Define A Set ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Like point and plane...
anonymous
  • anonymous
Something has to be primitive else you are going in a circle.....
hba
  • hba
Well You Have To Go In A Circle Before You Come To A Certain Point :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
Good place to finish:-)
