### Enquiry (7) from one of you - Real Numbers: Relationships

The relationship between the numbers system is as follows:

Amongst the 4 types of numbers,

Use the following exercise to check your understanding:

Amongst the 4 types of numbers,

**NATURAL NUMBERS**is the smallest of all - starts from 1, followed by 2, 3, 4, 5, ... basically, it's**positive integers****INTEGERS**is made up by**negative integers**(-1, -2, -3, .... )**, zero**(0)**and positive integers**(1, 2, 3, ...)**RATIONAL NUMBERS**are numbers that can be expressed as a fraction a/b such that both a and b are integers and b is non-zero. Integers and natural numbers are rational numbers since we can express them with denominator = 1.**REAL NUMBERS**are numbers include natural numbers, integers and rational numbers. It also includes numbers that cannot be expressed as a fraction, e.g.*pi*, square root of 2

Use the following exercise to check your understanding:

### Enquiry (6) from one of you - Real Numbers: Fractions Manipulation

"Evaluate" means find the final value of the expression given.

In this case, we are to find the final answer of the fraction given.

Usually, we can use the calculator to compute the answer; it's quite rare that we need to work out all the steps (as shown below).

However, once in a while, we might be asked to shown the working so that we can observe some 'patterns', to be applied to other parts of the question.

Take note the working on the right.

Take note the working on the right.

- Do not skip step, rewrite the "complex" fraction to what's shown (with the divide sign in-between).
- Then "convert" the divide sign to multiplication sign; hence we have the reciprocal of the fraction (which is after the "multiplication" sign now)

### Enquiry (1) from one of you - Algebra - finding unknowns

One of you made an enquiry on how to do solve this question.

There are 2 ways presented below, using
