Counting Numbers:

{1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, ...}

BY THE WAY, "..." notates continuation going up infinitely.

The set of Natural Numbers \( \mathbb{N}\ \ \) = {0, 1, 2 3, 4, 5, 6...}.

The set of Integers, \( \mathbb{Z}\ \ \)   = {..., -3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3}.

The set of Rational numbers, \( \mathbb{Q}\ \ \)  is the set of ratios of integers.

That is, every \(q \in \mathbb{Q}\ \)

is of the form:

\( q = \frac{n}{m} \ \)

With \( n, m \in \mathbb{Z}\ \) .

The set of Real Numbers \( \mathbb{R}\ \ \)  is the set of limits of sequences of rational numbers.
