In mathematics, a collection of elements is called a set, and the symbols { } are used to enclose the elements of the set. For example, the set {a, e, i, o, u} represents the vowels in the English alphabet. The set {1, 3, 5, 7} represents the first four positive odd numbers. Another method to express a set is to describe the elements of the set by using set-builder notation. Consider the set {a, e, i, o, u} in set-builder notation.

Set-builder notation: {x | x is a vowel in the English alphabet}

“the set of”

“all x ”

“such that”

“x is a vowel in the English alphabet”

Consider the set {1, 3, 5, 7} in set-builder notation.

Set-builder notation: {x | x is an odd number between 0 and 8}

“the set of ”

“all x ”

“such that”

“x is an odd number between 0 and 8”

Several sets of numbers are used extensively in algebra. The numbers you are familiar with in day-to-day calculations are elements of the set of real numbers. These numbers can be represented graphically on a horizontal number line with a point labeled as 0. Positive real numbers are graphed to the right of 0, and negative real numbers are graphed to the left. Each point on the number line corresponds to exactly one real number, and for this reason, the line is called the real number line (Figure 1-1).

Definition of the Natural Numbers, Whole Numbers, and Integers
The set of natural numbers is {1, 2, 3, . . . }. The set of whole numbers is {0, 1, 2, 3, . . . }. The set of integers is { . . . , 3, 2, 1, 0, 1, 2, 3, . . . }. The set of rational numbers consists of all the numbers that can be defined as a ratio of two integers.
