A rational number is a number that can be written as a ratio or fraction of two integers. For example. All integers themselves are rational numbers. 1 = 1/1, a ratio of two numbers. 2 = 2/1, 3 = 3/1. -1 = -1/1, -2 = -2/1, etc. All finite decimal expansions are rational numbers. E.g. 1.5 = 15/10 2.34 = 234/100 There are other rational numbers as well, such as 1/7. ===== Now, given that is your first number 3.75 rational?

  • JamesJ
Yes. 3.75 = 375/100. That's a fraction of two integers. Therefore 3.75 is a rational number.

What about -132 ?

  • anonymous
no. theres only one rational number in that group of numbers
JamesJ
  • JamesJ
That's not true. Didn't we just say that every integer is itself a rational number?
JamesJ
  • JamesJ
-132 = -132/1 hence -132 is also a rational number.
