Wonderful! Yes, if you have two integers that come one after another, for example, \(1\) and \(2\), you cannot find another integer between them.

Integers are the

For thousands of years, people wondered

Or, does this process of splitting

**opposite**of continuous; they are**discrete**. You can only find integers between two integers if the integers don't come one after another. Otherwise, you can't.For thousands of years, people wondered

**if matter was continuous or discrete**. That is, if you take an object and keep**splitting**it into smaller pieces, will you get smaller and smaller pieces, like with real numbers?Or, does this process of splitting

**stop**until you can't split it anymore?
