## What Are Numbers?

A mathematical value used to indicate an amount is called a number. A number is a mathematical notion that is used for counting, measuring, and labelling. As a result, mathematics is based on numbers.

For example, Here are 4 bananas and 1 apple.

## Mathematics/Numbers in Daily Life

We see the use of numbers everywhere. The day, month, and year of your birth are represented by three digits on your birthday.

All of our possessions—houses, bank accounts, cars, trucks, buses, and airplanes—have identifying numbers.

Numbers are used in the measurement. Temperature, weight, length, capacity, speed, distance, area, volume, and other variables are all measured using numbers.

## Types Of Numbers

In addition to the above-listed numbers, there are more numbers as well, such as even and odd numbers, prime numbers, and composite numbers. The definition of these is as follows:

## Comparing Numbers / How To Compare Numbers?

Numbers can be compared by two methods, one is the largest among others and the other is the smallest among other numbers.

Largest Number

(i) 92, 392, 4456, 89742

89742 is the Largest Number.

Smallest Number

(ii) 1902, 1920, 9201, 9021, 9210

1902 is the Smallest Number.

### Identify the greatest and lowest numbers in each row as rapidly as possible.

1. ##### Find Largest And Smallest Numbers 382, 4972, 18, 59785, 750

The largest number is 59785, while the smallest is 18.

2. ##### Find Largest And Smallest Numbers 1473, 89423, 100, 5000, 310

The greatest and lowest numbers are 100 and 89423 respectively.

To find the answer, we simply counted the digits. The greatest number has the most thousands, while the lowest number is just in the hundreds or tens.

Currently, how do 4875 and 3542 compare?
This isn’t that difficult either. These two numbers each contain the same number of digits. Each number is thousands. The digit in the thousands place is higher in 4875 than it is in 3542, though.

What should we do if the digits in the hundreds place of the two numbers are also the same?
Also compare 4875 and 4879, as well as 4875 and 4889.

Therefore, 4875 is bigger than 3542.

## How many numbers are you able to create?

Say we have the numbers 7, 8, 3, and 5 as our four digits. With these digits, we wish to make numerous 4-digit numbers while ensuring that no digit is repeated. Therefore, whereas 7735 is unacceptable, 7835 is. How many 4-digit numbers can you think of?
What is the highest number you can get? What is the lowest number?
The greatest and lowest numbers are, respectively, 8753 and 3578.

Ascending order: Ascending order is the placement of items in order of size.
Descending order is the arranging of items from largest to smallest.

1. ##### Is the number zero even?

Zero divided by two results in a remainder of zero and a quotient of zero. Zero is therefore an even number.

2. ##### Can rational numbers have negative values?

Yes, Positive, zero, and negative rational numbers are the three categories under which rational numbers fall.

3. ##### Arrange the following numbers in ascending order :847, 9754, 8320, 57138802

Ascending order: 571, 847, 8320, 9754.
