Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, we learn about the sets of numbers and the types of numbers within each set. The first and largest set is the real numbers, which includes every number that exists in reality. Within the real numbers, there's a split between rational and irrational numbers. Rational numbers are numbers that either end or repeat themselves and can be written as fractions with no decimals. Irrational numbers don't end or repeat and include square roots. There are additional categories within the rational numbers, such as integers, whole numbers, and natural or counting numbers.
