Nu·mer·ic Nu·mer·ic·al a.

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.]

*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.
