<div><font color="#141823" face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"><span style="font-size: 12px; line-height: 16px; white-space: pre-wrap; background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255);">{nagh mI'} for integer, I suppose because integers cannot&nbsp;"broken" into smaller numbers. I prefer something like {toghmeH mI'} or {mIw mI'} for integer.</span></font></div>

<div><font color="#141823" face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"><span style="font-size: 12px; line-height: 16px; white-space: pre-wrap; background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255);">{lam mI'} for rational number, because they can be split (ie. factored?) practically indefinitely. This certainly isn't descriptive of the English term; a rational number is one that can be written as a fraction of integers. Since Maltz hasn't ventured into integers yet, this could prove a tricky area to navigate.</span></font></div>

<div><font color="#141823" face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"><span style="font-size: 12px; line-height: 16px; white-space: pre-wrap; background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255);">{vaHbo' mI'} for real number, because of their continuity, or fluidity, through the entire number spectrum. If and when Maltz delves into real &amp; imaginary numbers, I would think something like {mI' teH} and {mI' ngeb} might be better suited.</span></font></div>

<div><font color="#141823" face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"><span style="font-size: 12px; line-height: 16px; white-space: pre-wrap; background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255);">{mI' Sub} is a term I propose for prime number, one which cannot be factored into smaller numbers.</span></font></div>

<div>{ghom} works quite well for sets of numbers</div>

<div>{'ay'} could work for numerical factors. {jav 'ay'mey bIH wa' cha' je}, but this could be read as "6 parts" rather than "the parts of 6".</div>
