Real Numbers

Real numbers are quantities that can be expressed as infinite decimal expansions. They are used in measurements of continuously varying quantities such as size and time.
The real numbers include the positive and negative integers and rational numbers and also the irrational numbers.
The real numbers can be characterized by the important mathematical property of completeness, meaning that every set that has an upper bound has a smallest such bound, a property not possessed by the rational numbers.
