Mathematics is the natural language of science and engineering. It is about numbers, shapes, symmetry, chance, change, and much more. Mathematics is deeply interwoven into all of modern life.

let us discuss mathematics language which is divided according to its learning method.

number

shapes

symmetry

symbols

Number: most of us know about numbers there are many types of numbers if we talk about terms mathematics.

natural number, whole number, an odd number, even number, prime number, co-prime numbers, positive number, negative numbers, integer number,

these are main numbers according to their uses but in reality, there are only 0 to 9 numbers are real numbers and they are called natural numbers.

remember 0 is not a natural number but it is a part of a whole number.

Natural Number: all the counting numbers from 1 to 9 are called natural numbers they further combine with each other and create larger numbers like 11, 25,36, and many more.

Whole number: including 0 to 9 all the numbers are called the whole number and they have the power to create and solve any magnetic problems.

Odd Numbers: the term odd number means a number that doesn't have any other factor, and they have only 2 factors that are called odd numbers.

or you can understand that the number which is not factorized in terms of 2 is called odd numbers.

even Number: the number that can be factorized in terms of 2 that is called even numbers like 4, 6, 8, 12, 20, etc.

shape: shapes are very important in term of mathematics, scientist have calculated any shape in terms of mathematics and it is also part of mensuration which describe the physical shape and calculate area volume and many more about the shape.
