# CLASSIFICATION OF NUMBERS

Natural Numbers : N = {1,2,3,4,.} Whole Numbers : W = {0,1,2,3,,...} Integers : Z = { ,-3,-2,-1,0,1,2,3,..} Rational Numbers : Any number which can be expressed in the form p/q , where p & q are integers and q 0. Any Natural Number is a Rational Number. Any Whole Number is a Rational Number. Any Integer is a Rational Number. Any terminating Decimal is a Rational Number. For e.g., 0.25 = 25/100 Any recurring decimal can be converted in to the form p/q where p & q are integers and q0. Therefore, any recurring decimal is a rational Number. Irrational Numbers: Any non-terminating decimal and non recurring decimal is an irrational number. and e are irrational numbers

Prime Numbers
A prime number is a number which is divisible by 1 and itself. In other words, it has exactly 2 factors. Eg : 2, 3, 5, 7, 11,13. 2 is the only even prime number.1 is neither prime nor composite. There are 25 prime numbers between 1 to 100 and 21 prime numbers between 101 and 200. Any prime number (greater than 3) can be expressed in the form 6k + 1 where k is a natural number. 37=6*6+1 :: 31 = 6*5+1 Any number of the form 6k 1 need not be a Prime Number. Eg. 35 = 6*6 -1 but is not prime.

## If N2 has 5 factors less than N, how many factors N3 has ?

For the given question , as has five factors less than N, it will have 5 factors more than N and N is also a factor. So, N2 has eleven factors (p+1) (q+1) (r+1) = 11 N2 = a10 N3 = a15 N3 has 16 factors N2

Let N2 = 16 then N = 4 . Factors of 16 are 1, 2, 4, 8 & 16. Factors less than N are two & factors greater than N are also two. N is also a factor of N2. Therefore N2 has 5 factors Let N2 = 36 then N = 6 . Factors of 36 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 9, 12, 18 & 36. Factors less than N are four & factors greater than N are also four. N is also a factor of N2. Therefore N2 has 9 factors Note: If N2 has k factors less than N, it will have k factors more than N . N will also be a factor. Therefore N2 will have (2k+1) factors
