Notation: N : set of natural numbers (1, 2, 3, . . .) Z : set of integers (. . . , −3, −2, −1, 0, 1, 2, . . .) Q : Rational numbers 2 • Recall that a real number is rational if it can be expressed in the form α = m n , where m and n are in Z. • Irrational numbers: Those which cannot be expressed in the form m/n, m, n ∈ Z. Example: √ √ 2, 1+ 5 π = 3.1419, . 2 3 Pythagorean Triples: • P QR is right angled triangle • Sides have lengths a, b, c.
