    a rational number is an integer ie 3 , 11 - 8 or a number that can be written as a fraction a/b. Any other number is irrational eg sqrt 2 - the decimal fom does not end its infinitely long . Other examples of irrational numbers are pi and e.

    note not all infinitely recurring numbers are irrational eg 0.3333..... is 1/3 so it is rational.
