**One** (**1**) is a natural number after zero and before two.
It represents a single item.
A human typically has one head, nose, mouth, and navel (belly-button).
The Roman numeral for *one* is I.

## Mathematics

In mathematics, **1** is the multiplicative identity of common numbers.^{[1]} It is sometimes called the "unity".^{[2]} It is also the only number for which these special facts are true.

- Any number
*n*multiplied by 1 equals that number:*n*× 1 =*n.*For example, 7 × 1 = 7. - Any number
*n*divided by 1 equals that number:*n*/ 1 =*n*. For example, 7 / 1 = 7. - Any number
*n*, other than 0, divided by itself always equals 1:*n*/*n*= 1. For example: 7 / 7 = 1. - 1 cannot be divided with any other number so that the result is a natural number.

In mathematics, 0.999... is a repeating decimal that is mathematically equal to 1. Many proofs have been made to show this is correct.

## Computer science

The number *one* is important for computer science, because the binary numeral system uses only **1**s and **0**s. In machine code and many programming languages, one means true and zero means false.

## Other meanings
