num['e]rique. See {Number}, n.]
1. Belonging to number; denoting number; consisting in
numbers; expressed by numbers, and not letters; as,
numerical characters; a numerical equation; a numerical
statement.
Note: Numerical, as opposed to {algebraical}, is used to
denote a value irrespective of its sign; thus, 5 is
numerically greater than 3, though algebraically less.
2. The same in number; hence, identically the same;
identical; as, the same numerical body. [Obs.] South.
Would to God that all my fellow brethren, which with
me bemoan the loss of their books, . . . might
rejoice for the recovery thereof, though not the
same numerical volumes. Fuller.
{Numerical equation} (Alg.), an equation which has all the
quantities except the unknown expressed in numbers; 
distinguished from {literal equation}.
{Numerical value} of an equation or expression, that deduced
by substituting numbers for the letters, and reducing.
\Nu*mer"ic\, n. (Math.)
Any number, proper or improper fraction, or incommensurable
ratio. The term also includes any imaginary expression like m
+ n[root]1, where m and n are real numerics.
