Hello, Aishwarya.

In math, a "number" is an abstract concept used to denote an amount. For example, "9" onions means that there exist an amount of 9 separate onions.

Numbers don't really exist, not in a physical sense. There is no number 6, for example, in the real world.

A numeral is a representation of a number. We probably see numerals every day of our lives. You can represent 10, for example, in many different ways using numerals. One way is simply writing "10," but in Roman Numerals, it's X.

In Base 2, ten is represented by the numeral 1010. And so on.

I can try to be online most evenings around 8 PM, EST. I can't guarantee this, though, as I'm currently a college student.

Thanks,
John
