INDEFINITE, NUMBER. A number which may be increased or diminished at pleasure.
     2. When a corporation is composed of an indefinite number of persons, any number of them consisting of a majority of those present may do any act unless it be otherwise regulated by the charter or by-laws. See Definite number.

NUMBER. A collection of units.
     2. In pleading, numbers must be stated truly, when alleged in the recital of a record, written instrument, or express contract. Lawes' PI. 48; 4 T. R. 314; Cro. Car. 262; Dougl. 669; 2 Bl. Rep. 1104. But in other cases, it is not in general requisite that they should be truly stated, because they are not required to be strictly proved. If, for example, in an action of trespass the plaintiff proves the wrongful taking away of any part of the goods duly described in his declaration, he is entitled to recover pro tanto. Bac. Ab. Trespass, I 2 Lawes' PI. 48.
     3. And sometimes, when the subject to be described is supposed to comprehend a multiplicity of particulars, a general description is sufficient. A declaration in trover alleging the conversion of "a library of books"' without stating their number, titles, or quality, was held 'to be sufficiently certain; 3 Bulst. 31; Carth. 110; Bac. Ab. Trover, F 1; and in an action for the loss of goods, by burning the plaintiff's house, the articles may be described by the simple denomination of "goods" or "divers goods." 1 Keb. 825; Plowd. 85, 118, 123; Cro. Eliz. 837; 1 H. Bl. 284.

The concrete CT images can be analyzed based on the different densities that are reflected by CT numbers, which describe the degree to which X-rays can pass through a sample.
Equations (11) and (12) can solve the damage variables of the scanned cross section of acid-eroded sandstone based on the CT number. The calculated damage variables at different corrosion stages of the middle scanning layer of the sandstone samples attacked by the sulfuric acid solution with pH = 3 and 1 are shown in Table 5.
The CT numbers were evaluated and the mass attenuation coefficients of the polyethylene were obtained at each applied energy for both single-energy and dual-energy modes.
CT number = 1,000 x ([[mu].sub.x] - [[mu].sub.water])/[[mu].sub.water] + 1,024 [2]
Threshold values for each phase medium and CT number of concrete specimens are hardened cement mortar (2000~2200), aggregate (2200~3071), and interfacial transition zone (1000~1600).
In Section 3, a quantitative analysis on the CT number and images is performed.
Data in 3-D space is systematically organized so that each point in 3-D space has a specific "address." Each point in 3-D space represents the information (CT number or MRI signal intensity) of the voxels within the slice.
Similarly, among the limitations of the phantom also was the not too large but finite difference in CT numbers between the phantom (9.8 HU) and anatomical range (45.6 HU) for the SE material.

Table 3 shows the range of Hounsfield units or CT numbers for a variety of body tissue densities.
The CT numbers within the 2-cm by 2-cm square of each sample were used to correlate to average MC of the sample.
