    For example:
    1) [tex]A\in\mathcal{Z}[/tex]
    2) [tex]A\notin\mathcal{Z}[/tex]

    [itex]A[/itex] is an integer: [itex]A\in\mathbb Z[/itex].
    [itex]A[/itex] is not an integer: [itex]A\notin\mathbb Z[/itex].
    [itex]A[/itex] is a real number which is not an integer: [itex]A\in\mathbb R\backslash\mathbb Z[/itex].
    [itex]A[/itex] is not a whole number: [itex]A\notin\mathbb Z_+[/itex].
