 2 (number) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Two is the base of the simplest numeral system in which natural numbers can be written concisely, being the length of the number a logarithm of the value of the number (whereas in base 1 the length of the number is the value of the number itself); the binary system is used in computers.

 The Magical Number Seven   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-10)

This is one of the ways in which the magical number seven has persecuted me. Here we have two closely related kinds of experiments, both of which point to the significance of the number seven as a limit on our capacities.

 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.

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.

 A Formula for the nth Fibonacci number
Complex Numbers and Their Applications by F J Budden, Longman's 1968, is now out of print but is an excellent introduction to the fascinating subject of complex numbers and their applications.
Numbers which are real have zero as their complex part so the real number 3 is the same as the complex number 3 + 0 i and has "coordinates" (3,0).
Numbers which are purely imaginary have a real-part of zero and so are of the form 0+yi always lying exactly on the y axis (the imaginary axis).

 Number Systems
From the number systems of these earlier peoples came the base of 60, that is the sexagesimal system.
The Egyptian numbering system was also based on units of 10, but instead of relying on the position of numbers to define their value, the Egyptians used different images to represent different units of 10.
Binary numbers use the same rules as decimal - the value of any digit always depends on its position in the whole number.

 NIEHS Kids Page -- Number Brainteasers 2
Tell a friend that the two of you will pick five 5-digit numbers at random, and then will add them together -- but, amazingly, after just hearing the first number and before the others have even been selected, you'll be able to accurately predict what the TOTAL of those five numbers will be!
Then you immediately write a fifth 5-digit number beneath it (again, you'd select that number according to the instructions below).
Compare that answer to the one you wrote down after the first number was selected.

 Shodor Interactivate: Whole Number Cruncher   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-10)
This activity allows the user to to explore whole number linear functions by determining the rule that the number cruncher machine is following.
Students can enter numbers and use the result to determine what the function is. This activity would work well in small groups of 3-4 for about 20 minutes if you use the exploration questions and 10 minutes otherwise.
After the students have been working, explain a higher level strategy for finding the result: use 0 first and if the result is a whole number then that is the +/- component; if the result is 0, then it is a multiplication situation and plugging in 1 will find the solution.

If someone wished to keep the fast, he would keep the fast; if someone wished to abandon the fast, he would feed an indigent every day; it would do for him.

Hence the fast was prescribed for the one who was present in the month (of Ramadan) and the traveller was required to atone (for them); feeding (the indigent) was prescribed for the old man and woman who were unable to fast.
