A pure mathematician would demand some way to define all the integers, positive, negative, and 0, using only the idea of a set and nothing else. We can define the entire set of integers in the same way as we defined the set of natural numbers. Put your “abstract thinking cap” on again (if it isn’t glued to your head by now), and keep in mind that what you’re about to read does not represent the only way the set of integers can be defined in a “pure” way. Building the integers The natural numbers have a clear starting point, which is 0.

Is there a largest prime? ” Here’s why. You might have to read the following explanation two or three times to completely understand it. Try to follow it step-by-step. If you can accept each step of this argument one at a time, that’s good enough. The fact that there is no such thing as a largest prime is one of the most important facts, or theorems, that have ever been proven in mathematics. Let’s start by imagining that there actually is a largest prime number. Then we’ll prove that this assumption cannot be true by “painting ourselves into a corner” where we end up with something ridiculous.

Subsets When all the elements of a set are also contained in a second set, the first set is called a subset of the second. If you have two sets A and B, and every element of A is also an element of B, then A is a subset of B. That fact can be written A⊆B 24 The Language of Sets Figure 2-1 shows that the set of all the women in Chicago is a subset of the set of all the people in Illinois. That is expressed by a hatched square inside a shaded oval. Figure 2-1 also shows that the set {2, 4, 6} is a subset of the set of positive whole numbers.
