SECTION I.

NUMERATION AND NOTATION.

1. If we desire to know how many trees there are in a certain grove, we must count them; thus, one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, etc., until all have been counted.

These expressions, one, two, three, etc., are called Whole Numbers, or Integers.

2. Notation is the method of representing numbers by means of characters.

Numeration is the method of reading numbers when expressed by characters.

ARABIC SYSTEM OF NOTATION.

3. Ten characters, called Figures, are used to represent numbers. They are―

FIGURES, 1, 2, 3, 4,
4, 5,
Names, one, two, three, four, five,

6, 7, 8, 9, 0,

six, seven, eight, nine, zero.

These ten characters are also called Digits.

A figure standing alone expresses ones, or Units.

4. Numbers greater than nine are expressed by writing two or more of these figures side by side.

If we add one more to nine, we shall have ten. To express this, we write 1 in the second place and zero in the first place. Hence

A figure standing in the second place expresses Tens. Thus,

10 is ten units or 1 ten, called ten.

11 is 1 ten and 1 unit, or eleven.
12 is 1 ten and 2 units, or twelve.
13 is 1 ten and 3 units, or thirteen.
14 is 1 ten and 4 units, or fourteen.

And so on to 19, or nineteen.

20 is 2 tens, called twenty.

21 is 2 tens and 1 unit, or twenty-one.
22 is 2 tens and 2 units, or twenty-two.
23 is 2 tens and 3 units, or twenty-three.

And so on to 29, or twenty-nine.

In like manner we have 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, with the intervening numbers.

EXERCISES.

1. Write neatly in figures the numbers from ten to twenty; from thirty to forty; from fifty to sixty; from seventy to eighty; from thirty-four to fifty-six; from sixty-six to eighty-six.

9. What is the largest number that can be expressed by two

figures? What is the smallest?
