Belonging to number; denoting number; consisting in numbers; expressed by numbers, and not letters; as numerical characters; a numerical equation; a numerical statement.

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. From WordNet r 1.6 [wn]: numerical adj 1: measured or expressed in numbers; "numerical value"; "the numerical superiority of the enemy" [syn: {numeric}] 2: of or relating to or denoting numbers; "a numeral adjective"; "numerical analysis" [syn: {numeral}, {numeric}] 3: designated by or expressed in numbers; "numerical symbols"; "a very simple numeric code"; "numerical equations" [syn: {numeric}] 4: relating to or having ability to think in or work with numbers; "tests for rating numerical aptitude"; "a mathematical whiz" [syn: {mathematical}] [ant: {verbal}]
