Since we generally work with rational numbers, the irrational numbers may seem to be unnecessary. However, irrational numbers occur in some very real situations. Over 2000 years ago people in the Orient and Egypt observed that the ratio of the circumference and diameter is the same for any circle. This constant value was proven to be an irrational number by Johann Heinrich Lambert in 1767. Like other irrational numbers, it does not have any convenient representation as a decimal number. This number has been given the name ␲ (Greek letter pi).

So Ϫ(Ϫ12) ϭ 12. b) The opposite of the opposite of Ϫ8 is Ϫ8. So Ϫ(Ϫ(Ϫ8)) ϭ Ϫ8. Now do Exercises 13–16 Remember that we have defined Ϳ a Ϳ to be the distance between 0 and a on the number line. Using opposites, we can give a symbolic definition of absolute value.
