What's the general math definition for inclusive and exclusive??? Thanks fr everything and ty :tongue:

The "general" math definition is just the usual dictionary definition: "inclusive" means including everything under discussion and "exclusive" means excluding everything under discussion. Of course, what is under discussion depends upon the specific situation. In "the set of numbers between 0 and 1, inclusive" the word "inclusive" means that the endpoints, for which the word "between" is ambiguous, are included. In "the set of numbers between 0 and 1, exclusive" they are excluded.

Inclusive and exclusive are used in logic and set theory in the context of the"or" or "union" operation. Inclusive means either or both, while exclusive means either but not both.
