Study Notes
Definition of Integers
- Integers are whole numbers, either positive, negative, or zero, without a fractional part.
- They are denoted by the symbol "Z" and include the set of numbers {..., -3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3, ...}.
Properties of Integers
- Closure: The result of adding or multiplying two integers is always an integer.
- Commutative Property: The order of integers in an operation does not change the result. (e.g., a + b = b + a, a × b = b × a)
- Associative Property: The order in which integers are grouped in an operation does not change the result. (e.g., (a + b) + c = a + (b + c), (a × b) × c = a × (b × c))
- Distributive Property: Integers can be distributed across addition and subtraction operations. (e.g., a × (b + c) = a × b + a × c)
Types of Integers
- Positive Integers: Integers greater than zero (e.g., 1, 2, 3, ...).
- Negative Integers: Integers less than zero (e.g., -1, -2, -3, ...).
- Zero: The additive identity, which is neither positive nor negative.
Operations on Integers
- Addition: The result of adding two integers is always an integer.
- Subtraction: The result of subtracting one integer from another is always an integer.
- Multiplication: The result of multiplying two integers is always an integer.
- Division: The result of dividing one integer by another is not always an integer, but may be a fraction or a decimal.
Important Concepts
- Absolute Value: The distance of an integer from zero, always a positive value.
- Opposite: The integer with the same magnitude but opposite sign.
- Reciprocal: The multiplicative inverse of an integer, except for zero.
