An introduction to prime numbers
By: Steve Marshall
Prime numbers are simple enough in their basic make up and definition, but there are some unknown aspects of prime numbers that even until today defy the best brains of the best mathematicians in the world of today.Primes numbers are deceptively simple. They are...
How math is used to describe change
By: Fendy Sutandio
Description for any change over time is necessary for most daily application of mathematics. Mathematics itself is applied everyday in many fields of expertise. Since each field of expertise have different requirement for the representation of change, mathematics itself have a lot of tools in...

Natural numbers, (or the counting numbers) are integers that are defined as the set of numbers greater than zero that are not fractions by first nature, but instead are a subset of the whole numbers. Integers were initially known as the counting numbers and their...
How to calculate simple theoretical probability
By: Erik Setser
Theoretical probability is the likelihood of a specific outcome or set of outcomes resulting from a single trial. Given that the actual outcome is determined nigh purely by chance, it cannot be used as an accurate tool of prediction. That is to say, if a...
Division by zero is it really Impossible
By: Mike Mueller - 512349
Division by zero is a violation of the axiomatic system of real numbers. This easily follows from the associative and distributive properties. For example 10/5 = 2 and 2*5 always = 10. If we allowed 1/0 to be defined such that 0(1/0)=1 then we would...

Spacial Dimensions in our universe work in three ways, length, depth and width. However, there could be countless different dimensions so it is difficult imagining them all. There is no 100% proof that there even are other spacial dimensions and the way we imagine them...
Understanding natural numbers
By: Dallas Brown
The natural numbers, the numbers you wuold normally use for counting objects or sets of items, start at one. They consist of one, two, three, four.... and so on, using only the positive integers and not the negative ones. Also, zero is a whole number...
Transfinite Numbers
By: Leslie Dellow
The reason being that division by zero is not allowable for reasons very simply stated. Let a and b be any two numbers, and then consider the equation: a x 0 = b x 0 If division by zero is allowable, you can then simply...
Mathematics: How to do implicit differentiation
By: Adam Feneley
Implicit DifferentiationWhen studying A level mathematics at college you uncover many methods of differentiation, coming to the end of my two year course this is the most difficult I have come across although most of the challenge is getting over the initial appearance of the...
Division by zero
By: Brian Brehm
I worked on something like this quite a few years ago. The papers that I originally wrote it down on have been shoved in a box somewhere in storage. I do not recall the exact methods I used to figure this out but I will...
