In this article we extend the notion of closed itemsets of binary transaction databases to numerical transaction databases, and give an algorithm to mine them. We compare the computation time of our method and the case using scaling technique. We consider the case that information of closed itemsets of binarized database is given, and investigate how changes if algorithm utilize the information for mining by some experiments.
