Videotaped studies of kitchen habits show that the real number is about 30 percent.
The real number is much higher as many items are stolen from undocumented “virgin” sites.
But an RJC board member told the investigative website Open Secrets that the real number was more like $15 million.
Remes, by the way, says he and the others lawyers believe that the real number of hunger strikers is closer to 130.
In 2011, women reported 3,000 instances; the real number is thought to be 19,000.
We find in a cover by General Sheaffe, that the first report of the cannon taken was one-third short of the real number.
Although their reports place their loss at over 4,000, it falls short of the real number.
The real number of churches where there is Holy Communion every Sunday is, by recent returns, about 430.
The teacher names successively several numbers, and asks, whether they think the real number will be greater or less.
The real number was 76, six having been dropped on subsequent political excitements.
mathematics
One of the infinitely divisible range of values between positive and negative infinity, used to represent continuous physical quantities such as distance, time and temperature.
Between any two real numbers there are infinitely many more real numbers. The integers ("counting numbers") are real numbers with no fractional part and real numbers ("measuring numbers") are complex numbers with no imaginary part. Real numbers can be divided into rational numbers and irrational numbers.
Real numbers are usually represented (approximately) by computers as floating point numbers.
Strictly, real numbers are the equivalence classes of the Cauchy sequences of rationals under the equivalence relation "~", where a ~ b if and only if a-b is Cauchy with limit 0.
The real numbers are the minimal topologically closed field containing the rational field.
A sequence, r, of rationals (i.e. a function, r, from the natural numbers to the rationals) is said to be Cauchy precisely if, for any tolerance delta there is a size, N, beyond which: for any n, m exceeding N,
| r[n] - r[m] | < delta
A Cauchy sequence, r, has limit x precisely if, for any tolerance delta there is a size, N, beyond which: for any n exceeding N,
| r[n] - x | < delta
(i.e. r would remain Cauchy if any of its elements, no matter how late, were replaced by x).
It is possible to perform addition on the reals, because the equivalence class of a sum of two sequences can be shown to be the equivalence class of the sum of any two sequences equivalent to the given originals: ie, a~b and c~d implies a+c~b+d; likewise a.c~b.d so we can perform multiplication. Indeed, there is a natural embedding of the rationals in the reals (via, for any rational, the sequence which takes no other value than that rational) which suffices, when extended via continuity, to import most of the algebraic properties of the rationals to the reals.
