Number system
? In earlier days, people used to exchange their things for
other things. The requirement for numbers primarily
originated from the need to count.
? They used the numbers 1,2,3,.that served the people for
many years because all they needed to count was their
crops, and animals.
? Later on numbers such as zero, integers, rational
numbers, irrational numbers were introduced.
? There is evidence that as early as 30,000 BC our ancient
ancestors were tallying or counting things. That is where
the concept of number systems began.

? Natural Numbers:
?A natural number is a number that comes naturally,
?Natural numbers are greater than zero we can use this
numbers as counting numbers: {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 ….…, }.
? Whole numbers:
?Whole numbers are just all the natural numbers plus a
zero: {0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, ……………… , }.
? If our system of numbers was limited to the Natural
Numbers then a number such as –2 would have no
meaning. The next number system is the Integers.
