Summary. Some fundamental properties of addition, multiplication, order relations, exact division, the remainder, divisibility, the least common multiple, the greatest common divisor are presented. A proof of Euclid algorithm is also given. MML Identifier:NAT_1. WWW:http://mizar.org/JFM/Vol1/nat_1.html The articles , , , , , and  provide the notation and terminology for this paper. A natural number is an element of N. For simplicity, we use the following convention: x is a real number, k, l, m, n are natural numbers, h, i, j are natural numbers, and X is a subset of R. The following proposition is true (2) 1 For every X such that 0 ∈ X and for every x such that x ∈ X holds x+1 ∈ X and for every k holds k ∈ X. Let n, k be natural numbers. Then n+k is a natural number. Let n, k be natural numbers. Note that n+k is natural. In this article we present several logical schemes. The scheme Ind concerns a unary predicate P, and states that: For every natural number k holdsP[k] provided the parameters satisfy the following conditions: • P, and • For every natural number k such thatP[k] holdsP[k+1]. The scheme Nat Ind concerns a unary predicateP, and states that: For every natural number k holdsP[k] provided the following conditions are satisfied: • P, and • For every natural number k such thatP[k] holdsP[k+1]. Let n, k be natural numbers. Then n · k is a natural number. Let n, k be natural numbers. Observe that n · k is natural. Next we state several propositions: (18) 2 0 ≤ i. (19) If 0 � = i, then 0 < i. (20) If i ≤ j, then i · h ≤ j · h. 1 The proposition (1) has been removed. 2 The propositions (3)–(17) have been removed.
