Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Natural numbers are the counting numbers. Pretend you are counting on your fingers. Which of these numbers are counting numbers?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So would this be my answer: \[8, 0, 0.4, \sqrt{5}, \sqrt{49}\] in that correct order?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You can't count 8 on your fingers, or 0.4, etc. Imagine you've got a basket of apples and you're counting them. Those numbers are the natural numbers. {1, 2, 3, ...}

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So my natural numbers would be this answer then perhaps right? \[0, \sqrt{5}, \sqrt{49}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Unfortunately, there is no agreement as to whether zero is a natural number, but my experience has been that it is normally included as well.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Can you hold up \(\sqrt{5}\) fingers?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh so those are imaginary numbers right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No. Imaginary numbers are something else. \(\sqrt{5}\) is what's called an irrational number. So what's your final answer?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So my only real natural number could be \[0\]. Because it cant be a fracton either correct?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well. Do you what \(\sqrt{49}\) equals?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Right. So is that a natural number?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes it is. So my natural numbers are: \[0, \sqrt{49}\]?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Correct. Well done. The set of natural numbers doesn't have any fractions, or decimals, or negative number. Just counting numbers.
