Complex numbers are basically "numbers in two dimensions". You can extend them to more dimensions; one superset that is sometimes used is the quaternions, which are numbers in four dimensions.

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

What subsets of the real numbers does the number 25.6 belong?

It belongs to the interval (25, 27.3), or [-20.9, 10*pi], and infinitely more such intervals.It also belongs to the set of rational numbers, real numbers, complex numbers and quaternions.

What is the difference between real and rational numbers?

The rational numbers are a subset of the real numbers. You might recall that rational numbers are those that can be expressed as the ratio of two whole numbers (no matter how large they are). Irrational numbers, like pi, cannot. But both sets (the rational and irrational numbers) are subsets of the real numbers. In fact, when we look at all the numbers, we are looking at the complex number system. We break that down into the real and the imaginary numbers. And the real numbers have the rational and irrational numbers as subsets. It's just that simple.

What is the 2 main subsets of real numbers?

The two main DISJOINT subsets of the Real numbers are the rational numbers and the irrational numbers.

What are the subsets of a real numbers?

The set of real numbers is infinitely large, therefore it has an infinite amount of subsets. For example, {1}, {.2, 4, 800}, and {-32323, 3.14159, 32/3, 6,000,000} are all subsets of the real numbers. There are a few, important, and well studied namedsubsets of the real numbers. These include, but aren't limited to, the set of all prime numbers, square numbers, positive numbers, negative numbers, natural numbers, even numbers, odd numbers, integers, rational numbers, and irrational numbers. For more information on these, and other, specific subsets of the real numbers, follow the link below.

What are the subset real numbers to -2.38?

Only a set can have subsets, a number such as -2.38 cannot have subsets.

What are examples of infinity sets?

Many infinite sets appear in mathematics: the set of counting numbers; the set of integers; the set of rational numbers; the set of irrational numbers; the set of real numbers; the set of complex numbers. Also, certain subsets of these, such as the set of square numbers, the set of prime numbers, and others.

What are the subsets for real numbers?

There are infinitely many subsets of real numbers. For example, {2, sqrt(27), -9.37} is one subset.

What are the two subsets of the real numbers that form the set of real numbers?

rational numbers and irrational numbers

Name the set or sets of numbers to which the real number belongs?

Say if the number is a whole,integer,rational, or irrational. For example: -3.5 is irrational. But 2 is whole, integer, and rational. * * * * * The above is absolute rubbish. -3.5 is rational (-7/2), not irrational. Also, it mentions the subsets of real numbers, whereas the question is about what the real numbers are a subsets of - the supersets of real numbers. Actually, the set of real numbers is probably the largest set of numbers that you will come across in Secondary School (age 16-ish). If you continue with mathematics beyond that you will come across complex numbers: real numbers are a subset of complex numbers. There are supersets of complex numbers as well but you will not come across them unless you study mathematics to a seriously high level.

The set of rational numbers and the set of irrational numbers?

Are disjoint and complementary subsets of the set of real numbers.

What is subset of real number?

There are lots of subsets; some of the ones that are commonly used are: rational numbers; irrational numbers; positive numbers; negative numbers; non-negative numbers; integers; natural numbers. Remember that a subset simply means a set that is contained in another set. It may even be the same set. So the real numbers are a subset of themselves. The number {3} is a subset of the reals. All the examples above are subsets as well. The set {0,1, 2+i, 2-i} is NOT a subset of the real numbers. The real numbers are a subset of the complex numbers.
