# Arithmetic q Since the set of rational numbers is countableand the set of real numbers is uncountablealmost all real numbers are irrational.

A real number that is not rational is called irrational. The first 6 of Robinson's 13 axioms are required only when, unlike here, the background logic does not include identity. The decimal expansion of a rational number always either terminates after a finite number of digits or begins to repeat the same finite sequence of digits over and over.

These fragments of Q remain undecidable, but they are no longer essentially undecidable: they have consistent decidable extensions, as well as uninteresting models i. The decimal expansion of an irrational number continues without repeating.

This theory is S' in Tarski et al.

### Language of peano arithmetic

The decimal expansion of an irrational number continues without repeating. Robinson derived the Q axioms 1 — 7 above by noting just what PA axioms are required to prove Mendelson Th. Thus the usual proof of the first incompleteness theorem can be used to show that Q is incomplete and undecidable. Machover —57 dispenses with axiom 3. Q is interpretable in a fragment of Zermelo's axiomatic set theory , consisting of extensionality , existence of the empty set , and the axiom of adjunction. The only use this proof makes of the PA axiom schema of induction is to prove a statement that is axiom 3 above, and so, all computable functions are representable in Q Mendelson Th. Hence it is often possible to prove in Q every specific instance of a fact about the natural numbers, but not the associated general theorem. A real number that is not rational is called irrational. These statements hold true not just for base 10 , but also for any other integer base e. The first 6 of Robinson's 13 axioms are required only when, unlike here, the background logic does not include identity. The axioms of Q were chosen specifically to ensure they are strong enough for this purpose. Finite extensions of Q are called algebraic number fields , and the algebraic closure of Q is the field of algebraic numbers. For instance, there is a computable model of Q consisting of integer-coefficient polynomials with positive leading coefficient, plus the zero polynomial, with their usual arithmetic. See general set theory for more details.

Variant axiomatizations[ edit ] The axioms in Robinson are 1 — 13 in Mendelson See general set theory for more details. These fragments of Q remain undecidable, but they are no longer essentially undecidable: they have consistent decidable extensions, as well as uninteresting models i. Since the set of rational numbers is countable , and the set of real numbers is uncountable , almost all real numbers are irrational. Metamathematics[ edit ] On the metamathematics of Q, see Boolos et al. Rational numbers together with addition and multiplication form a field which contains the integers and is contained in any field containing the integers. The decimal expansion of an irrational number continues without repeating.
