  Whole Numbers and Their Basic Properties
Similarly, to round a number to any place value, we find the number with zeros in all of the places to the right of the place value being rounded to that is closest in value to the original number.
If a number is not divisible by 4, the remainder when the number is divided by 4 is the same as the remainder when the last two digits are divided by 4.
The number 724560 is divisible by 12, since the number formed by its last two digits, 60, is divisible by 4, and the sum of its digits is 30, which is divisible by 3.

  Number - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The arithmetical operations of numbers, such as addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, are generalized in the branch of mathematics called abstract algebra, the study of abstract number systems such as groups, rings and fields.
This number is denoted by i, a symbol assigned by Leonhard Euler.
The existence of complex numbers was not completely accepted until the geometrical interpretation had been described by Caspar Wessel in 1799; it was rediscovered several years later and popularized by Carl Friedrich Gauss, and as a result the theory of complex numbers received a notable expansion.

However, the positions were usually limited to the fractional part of a number (called minutes, seconds, thirds, fourths, etc.)—they were not used for the integral part of a number.
Zero is neither positive nor negative, neither a prime number nor a composite number, nor is it a unit.
In some signed number representations (but not the two's complement representation predominant today) and most floating point number representations, zero has two distinct representations, one grouping it with the positive numbers and one with the negatives; this latter representation is known as negative zero.

 Number Systems - ninemsn Encarta
A number system is defined by the base it uses, the base being the number of different symbols, or numerals, required by the system to represent any of the infinite series of numbers.
To write a given base-10 number n as a base-b number, divide (in the decimal system) n by b, divide the quotient by b, the new quotient by b, and so on until the quotient 0 is obtained.
The first 20 numbers in the binary notation are 1, 10, 11, 100, 101, 110, 111, 1000, 1001, 1010, 1011, 1100, 1101, 1110, 1111, 10000, 10001, 10010, 10011, 10100.

The real numbers are those representable by an infinite decimal expansion, which may be repeating or nonrepeating; they are in a one-to-one correspondence with the points on a straight line and are sometimes referred to as the continuum.
Numbers of the form z = x + yi, where x and y are real and i = [radical]-1, such as 8 + 7i (or 8 + 7[radical]-1), are called complex numbers; x is called the real part of z and yi the imaginary part.
The complex numbers are in a one-to-one correspondence with the points of a plane, with one axis defining the real parts of the numbers and one axis defining the imaginary parts.

 Number Systems
The binary number system is refered to as base-2 and is used in computer technology because of the compact and reliable manner in which data can be represented with two states--such as "on-off" or "open-closed".
Binary was devised by themathematician/philosohper, Gottfried Wilhelm von Leibnitz in 1679.
The decimal number 83 is equal to the binary number, "1010011".

Zero is an integer which quantifies a count or an amount of null size; that is, if the number of your brothers is zero, that means the same thing as having no brothers, and if something has a weight of zero, it has no weight.
If the difference between the number of pieces in two piles is zero, it means the two piles have an equal number of pieces.
While mathematicians all accept zero as a number, some non-mathematicians would say that zero is not a number, arguing one cannot have zero of something.

 Number Session 1: Solutions
Other patterns include the fact that the same number appears on each diagonal from bottom left to top right (one diagonal has nothing but 9s, for example), and the fact that each number appears in every row and column exactly once.
This is true because each number occurs in every row and column exactly once, so we can always find a solution to a + x = b, no matter what numbers a and b are.
The numbers without inverses are not relatively prime to 10; they have common factors with 10 that are greater than 1.

 Number Systems and Representation
Other number systems, notably hexadecimal (base 16) and, to a lesser degree, octal (base 8) are also used in the study and programming of computers, but only because they provide a more compact notation for representing binary values.
The number of bits needed to count n items or represent n states is the smallest power of 2 that is equal to or greater than n.
Numbers that are bigger than 1 byte are stored in memory from low address to high address with the least significant bytes at the low addresses.

This is an example of a problem potentially so complex that no number of e-mails, however long and baroque, could possibly remedy the situation.
This command, issued as shown from a root shell, is sufficient to replace AboutTime's client role (I put this command in the "crontab" control file, to be executed at intervals).
And there are any number of time servers available under Linux to synchronize an intranet to a chosen master machine, which replaces AboutTime's server role.

Each increase in value occurs, till the value of the largest number in the set is reached (9), at which stage the next value is the smallest in the set (0) and a new value is generated in the left column (ie, the next value after 9 is 10).
When a number of bits is used to store values, the most significant bit [the bit which has the greatest value, in the left most column] is used to store the sign [positive or negative] of the number.
Another way of generating a 2's complement number is to start at the least significant bit, and copy down all the 0's till the first 1 is reached.

Using these keys, a user can enter a number by pressing the keys for the words used to pronounce the number in most western languages.
A second advantage of using a 13-key design is that it reduces the average number of keystrokes required to enter a number.
The use of a mouse to click on the keys of a software calculator is highly inconvenient, especially when the number of digits is relatively large (which is usually the case when you have to resort to the use of a calculator).

This change is required for the tens place of minutes following the hour and in shortened pronunciation of numbers between 10 and 19 hundred, including years, as well as their truncated two-digit forms, where the zero is a leading digit.
It is also very common when saying telephone numbers, decimals after the decimal point, the leading zero in decimal fractions less than one, or many other words such as "007".

 Whole number Summary
Counting numbers, as their name implies, compose the set {1, 2, 3,...} (in this symbolism the brackets denote the elements of a set and the end dots denote a continuation of the sequence).
Before the modern concept of whole or counting number, people had not yet differentiated the "number" of a group from the objects of which it is composed.
Inasmuch as the more advanced number systems can trace their development back to the whole numbers, one consequence of this effort was a reexamination of the whole numbers.

 The Binary Number System
Method 1: Divide the decimal number to be converted to binary by 2 resulting in an integer with a remainder (0 or 1), then divide the resulting integer by 2 resulting in another integer with a remainder (0 or 1).
Often when trying to determine the number of bits needed to represent a given number of possibilities, it's best to use the minimum number of bits rather than waste bits which can be used for other purposes.
The simplest method for determining the minimum number of bits needed to represent a given number of possibilities is to shift the binary column values to the right dropping the 1st column value.

 Number Theoretic Transform
When the number of elements in the transform is composite, a ``fast number theoretic transform'' may be constructed in the same manner as the fast Fourier transform is constructed from the DFT, or as the prime factor algorithm (or Winograd transform) is constructed for products of small primes [
Unlike the DFT, the number theoretic transform does not transform to a meaningful ``frequency domain''.
An interesting feature of the number theory transform is that all computations are exact (integer multiplication and addition modulo a prime integer).
