 4 (number) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia As a consequence of this, it is the smallest Smith number. The Arabs didn't have time for cursive fancy: their 4 still had the early concept of the cross, but for the sake of efficiency, was made in one stroke by connecting the "western" end to the "northern" end; the "eastern" end was finished off with a curve. The number of strings on a violin, a viola, a cello, double bass, and a ukulele, and the number of string pairs on a mandolin. en.wikipedia.org /wiki/4_(number)   (1736 words)

 Number - Simple English Wikipedia A number can be a symbol (such as 1, 2, 3,...) or a word (such as one, two, three,...) used for counting and for doing mathematical calculations. Integers are all the positive numbers, all the negative numbers, and the number zero. This number is the square root of minus one (-1). simple.wikipedia.org /wiki/Number   (1192 words)

 Palindromic number - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia It is fairly straightforward to appreciate that in any base there are infinitely many palindromic numbers, since in any base the infinite sequence of numbers written (in that base) as 101, 1001, 10001, etc. (in which the nth number is a 1, followed by n zeroes, followed by a 1) consists of palindromic numbers only. Although palindromic numbers are most often considered in the decimal system, the concept of palindromicity can be applied to the natural numbers in any numeral system. All numbers in base 10 with one digit {0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9} are palindromic ones. en.wikipedia.org /wiki/Palindromic_number   (745 words)

 Integers The number of units a number is from zero on the number line. If the number of negative integers counted in step 1 is even, the product is just the product from step 2, if the number of negative integers is odd, the product is the opposite of the product in step 2 (give the product in step 2 a negative sign). Point E has coordinates (-4,-3); it is 4 units to the left, and 3 units down from the origin. www.mathleague.com /help/integers/integers.htm   (1535 words)

 3.2.4 Number Theory The number theory group at Oklahoma State University has established a thriving program of research, including a regular seminar series featuring lectures of both a research and expository nature by the resident number theorists, as well as frequent lectures by distinguished young and senior number theorists from around the country. Number theory is famed not just for the beauty of its theorems, but for the enormous wealth and variety of techniques involved in discovering and proving these theorems. Our faculty is prepared to offer courses in algebraic number theory, class field theory, analytic number theory, the arithmetic of elliptic curves as well as other arithmetic algebraic varieties, p-adic analysis, automorphic and modular forms, discrete subgroups of algebraic groups, computational number theory, as well as many other subfields of number theory. www.math.okstate.edu /grad/brief-hbk/3_2_4Number_Theory.html   (395 words)

 Math Forum - Ask Dr. Math If you have a number like 12132 in base 4, you group the digits in pairs from the right, as "01 21 32" and rewrite converting each of those 2-digit base 4 numbers to one base-16 digit, giving 19E in hexadecimal. The base 4 number 12132 stands for the base 10 expression 1*4^4 + 2*4^3 + 1*4^2 + 3*4^1 + 2*4^0 where the "^" indicates a power or exponent. Since 4^1 is just 4 and 4^0 is 1, this can also be written as 1*4^4 + 2*4^3 + 1*4^2 + 3*4 + 2 Now, to make the next step clearer, I'll add some parentheses to focus attention on parts of the expression. mathforum.org /library/drmath/view/62037.html   (907 words)

 Introduction to Algebra To evaluate an expression at some number means we replace a variable in an expression with the number, and simplify the expression.

 XML Path Language (XPath) If the result is a number, the result will be converted to true if the number is equal to the context position and will be converted to false otherwise; if the result is not a number, then the result will be converted as if by a call to the boolean function. NOTE: The number function should not be used for conversion of numeric data occurring in an element in an XML document unless the element is of a type that represents numeric data in a language-neutral format (which would typically be transformed into a language-specific format for presentation to a user). In addition, the number function cannot be used unless the language-neutral format used by the element is consistent with the XPath syntax for a Number. www.w3.org /TR/xpath   (8473 words)

 Major Religions Ranked by Size   (Site not responding. Last check: ) Finally, a larger number of people answer "none" or "non-religious" when asked asked an open-ended queston about what their religious preference is. Although figures vary for each country, average numbers indicate that roughly half of the people who self-identify as "nonreligious" also answer "yes" when asked if they believe in God or a Higher Power. Estimates of the number of adherents are hopelessly unreliable. The number does not represent an exponential explosion the number of actual Zoroastrians (although there has been some growth in numbers), but is a result of re-evaluation of the existing population. www.adherents.com /Religions_By_Adherents.html   (11821 words)

Last check: ) Although a large number of commercial and free applications exist dealing with computer assisted assessment, there seems to be a lack of metrics for educational teams wishing to select the most appropriate assessment tool for their environment. The lecturer is able to know only a limited number of students and since the lectures follow one another in a short interval of time, only a few of the students with questions about the material can be helped. Test banks may be very useful in a number of ways, since organizing in a bank questions related to the same topic may simplify both random selection of questions and the evaluation of the understanding of the topic itself through statistical measures. cie.asu.edu /volume4/number6/index.html   (6486 words)

 Numbers: number 4 In the English language there is no other number whose number of letters is equal to its value. The number four on a calculator is made up of four light bars.

 Redox Reactions and Equations The oxidation number is a number identical with the valency but with a sign, expressing the nature of the charge of the species in question when formed from the neutral atom. Thus, the oxidation number of chlorine in hydrochloric acid is -1, while it is +1 in hypochlorous acid. H+ has an oxidation number (valency) of +1, and is reduced to an oxidation number (valency) of 0. www.chemistry.co.nz /redox_new.htm   (540 words)

 Geometry in Art & Architecture Unit 4 According to Vincent Hopper, "nothing in the history of number symbolism is so striking as the unanimity of all ages and climates in regard to the meanings of a few number symbols." He refers to this as elementary number symbolism. The number two appears to always have carried with it the idea of duality, of opposites and mutual antithesis, as we've seen with the Pythagoreans. Forty is the number of trial and privation, possibly starting when the Babylonians observed the forty-day disappearance of the Pleides which coincided with the rainy season, storms and floods, trial, danger. www.dartmouth.edu /~matc/math5.geometry/unit4/unit4.html   (2914 words)

 BBC - Radio 4 - Another 5 Numbers - The Number Four Simon Singh's journey begins with the number 4, which for over a century has fuelled one of the most elusive problems in mathematics: is it true that any map can be coloured with just 4 colours so that no two neighbouring countries have the same colour? The 4 colour map problem dates back to 1852 and Francis Guthrie, a student at University College London. He'd observed that every map drawn on paper could be filled in with just 4 colours so that no two neighbouring regions would be the same hue. www.bbc.co.uk /radio4/science/another51.shtml   (576 words)

 ISGEm, Volume 4 Number 2, May 1989 Having looked into a number of attempts to honor these requests, I am convinced that failure to study the cultural milieu of the proposed reforms has often resulted in a serious waste of time, effort, and money. However, given the opportunity to count in their own language, to teach the number words to their classmates and even to the teacher, and perhaps to explain the structure of the numeration system, their self-esteem grows immeasurably. An Afro-American teacher wrote a paper about fl children's exposure to number concepts through the illegal lottery known as the "numbers game." She described the use of probability, the skill of semi-literate people in recalling and recording numbers, and the system of hand gestures used when the police were on the scene. web.nmsu.edu /~pscott/isgem42.htm   (4960 words)
