Archimedean Property The real number field is Archimedean, i.e.

if a and b be any two positive real + numbers ( ) then there exists a positive integer n such that na >b Corollary I: If a + and b (any real number) Then n + such that Corollary II: If a + and

na >b

n + such that n > a


1 < n

Corollary III: If > 0 , n + such that Corollary IV: a ,

n + such that n > a

a + , b , n + na > b a + , n + s.t.

n> a

> 0 , n + s.t.
a , n + s.t.
