are all positive integers, is called a simple continued f raction.
Similarly, the other rational integers must be distinguished from the corresponding cardinals.
If we take aq-bp= +1 we have a general solution in integers of ax+by=c, viz.
Taking any number n to be represented by a point on a line at distance nL from a fixed point 0, where L is a unit of length, we start with a series of points representing the integers I, 2, 3,.
It is evident that, in this case, P ' p2, are two series of positive integers increasing without limit if the fraction does not terminate.
