$p-$adic numbers are an integral part of algebraic number theory. In this talk we will define the field $Q_p$ of $p-$adic numbers and observe some differences and similarities between $Q_p$ and the field of real numbers. Furthermore, we will state Hensel's Lemma and deduce some immediate, yet interesting, properties of $Q_p$.
