No.

one is a numeral. :P

No... one is an integer

i believed that from my childhood, that one is a number

im looking for a convincing argument

how do u define a number?

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

lol May I know @UnkleRhaukus is this exactly what you are asking for?

then by definition...1 is a number...what made u strike the question though...?

How many demonstrations do you need?

lol \[\Huge{1}\]

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

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

More uses:
1 apple a day keeps 1 doctor away.

u deserve a medal..bt i am new to this site...dnt kno how to give 1

He already has given me a medal. :P

k...i've already done that..

:P

Well, I got to go.
I'd see this stupid discussion after like 45 minutes when I return.
Bwahaha!

bye.

Well It Depends Unkle Rhaukus if you talk about objects on the table :)

In Nature,You Can not say There Are Zero Objects But On A Table There Can Be No Objects :)

one is a digit when we use it in a number system
one is a number when we use it to count things

o.O
o.O
o.O
o.O
o.O
o.O
o.O
o.O
o.O
o.O
o.O

{{empty set}}

Well ^^ You Are wrong,thats not an empty set,it has one object :)

Correct

{ } < Empty set

So is it 1?

Well Its Not The Number 1 but it is 1 object :)

That is (a) set theory definition of 1.

Why is it worse than "1"

Well I Agree With You On That Note

Why do we need a set theory definition of 1 at all?

Well Thats Not Exactly What Is Being Asked Here :)

To answer what is being asked, you have to define "number"

But It Is Not Necessary We Talk About It With Respect To Sets :)

Define it however u like, I gave one (mathematical) definition.
Do you have another definition?

one is an egg

"I" (as in individual)

^ dis agree ,One is One

So your proof goes, One is One, so One is a number..?

Exactly :)

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

Maybe^^

1 is a symbol representing repetititiveness

lol

1 is a first natural number.

No number is less than 1...?

No natural number is less than 1...

Because 0 things cannot exist in nature :D @maheshmeghwal9

Ah, the physicists viewpoing...:-)

viewpoint*

but @estudier that no number is less than 1 but 0 is a whole number.

What's a whole number?

said*

With Respect to sets W= {0,1,2,3.....}

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whole_number Pick one...

{0,1......\(\infty\)}

A set containing infinity as a member.....

a set starting from 0 to infinity

Do u mean an infinite set?

yes !

OK, which one?

which is starting from 0.

Natural numbers including 0

Seems we are talking about sets after all....

hmm ...
u r confusing me @estudier

Well Natural number does not include 0

They do or don't u have to say which.....

Or u can say "positve" or "non-negative" integers....

We Can Say Non-Zero Also :)

As you like, it just has to be clear...

Would You Like To Provide Example :)

And we can define all the other "numbers" by (transfinite) induction

Like point and plane...

Something has to be primitive else you are going in a circle.....

Well You Have To Go In A Circle Before You Come To A Certain Point :)

Good place to finish:-)
