MEANING OF WHOLE NUMBERS;(01-period)

natural numbers are the representation of existing object i.e 1,2,3,4,5,6,............etc.is there any indicator in natural numbers used to represent non existing objects . Counting numbers are natural numbers ,when there is no object then it is represented as zero but it is not a natural number . if this zero includes with existing objects like 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,..........etc this set of numbers is called as whole numbers. Zero is the smallest whole number . So whole numbers starts from zero and it is infinite set.

PROPERTIES OF WHOLE NUMBERS

to know the closure property under addition we see the properties shown by whole numbers

- the sum of two whole numbers is always a whole number

5+6=11,5+9=14 Example 1 = With the given whole numbers 4 and 9, Explain Closure Property for addition of whole numbers. Answer= Find the sum of given whole numbers 4 + 9 = 13 As we know that 13 is also a whole number, So, we can say that whole numbers are closed under addition.

Example 2 = With the given whole numbers 13 and 0, Explain Closure Property for addition of whole numbers. Answer= Find the sum of given whole numbers 13 + 0 = 13 As we know that 13 is also a whole number, So, we can say that whole numbers are closed under addition.

COMMUTATIVE PROPERTY UNDER ADDITION
Explanation :-
Addition is Commutative for Whole Numbers, this means that even if we change the order of numbers in addition expression, the result remains same. This property is also known as Commutativity for Addition of Whole numbers

Commutative Property for Addition of Whole Numbers can be further understood with the help of following examples :-

Example 1 = Explain Commutative Property for addition of whole numbers 5 & 7 in addition expression ? Answer = Given Whole Numbers = 5, 7 and their two orders are as follows :- Order 1 = 5 + 7 = 12 Order 2 = 7 + 5 = 12 As, in both the orders the result is same i.e 12 So, we can say that Addition is Commutative for Whole Numbers.

Example 2 = Explain Commutative Property for addition of whole numbers 23 & 43 in addition expression ? Answer = Given Whole Numbers = 23, 43 and their two orders are as follows :- Order 1 = 23 + 43 = 66 Order 2 = 43 + 23 = 66 As, in both the orders the result is same i.e 66 So, we can say that Addition is Commutative for Whole Numbers.

Example 3 = Explain Commutative Property for addition of whole numbers 20 & 4. Answer = Given Whole numbers = 20, 4 and their two orders are as follows :- Order 1 = 20 + 4 = 24 Order 2 = 4 + 20 = 24 As, in both the orders the result is same i.e 24, So, we can say that Addition is Commutative for Integers.

ASSOCIATIVE PROPERTY UNDER ADDITION When whole numbers are added irrespective of their group sum doesnot changes.this is known as associative property under addition. Within an expression containing two or more occurrences in a row of the same associative operator, the order in which the operations are performed does not matter as long as the sequence of the operands is not changed. That is, rearranging the paranthesis in such an expression will not change its value. Consider, for instance, the following equations:

(a+b)+c = a+(b+c) Activity 1: Step 1: The "Associative Laws" say that it doesn't matter how you group the numbers (i.e. which you calculate first) ... ... when you add: (a + b) + c = a + (b + c)

(this activity is from www.mathsisfun.com)

ACTIVITY2 : Check the associative property for the set of following whole numbers 1.(5,9,8)

2.(11,12,13) 3.(11,8,10)

Properties under multiplication on whole numbers Closure property: The product of two whole numbers is always a whole number. i.e 2*3=6, 5*5=25, 3*9=27 0*9=0 (the product of any whole number with zero is always a zero)
