A number is rational if it can be written as the quotient of two integers.

This is why the set of rational numbers is denoted \(\mathbb Q\) for quotient.

other than the number itself over 1

example...2 is rational because i can express it as 4/2

Please mention differences between rational and irrational numbers also.

Irrational numbers are simply numbers that are not rational.

pi cannot be expressed as a quotient even though 22/7 is near therefore it is irrational

Some more examples ....@lgbasallote

ALL integers are rational numbers

the integers are -1, -2, -3, 0, 1, 2, 3, etc

1/3 is a quotient of two integers, so it is a rational number.

that is rational because 1 amd 3 are integers

do you get it now?

lol why make it confusing :p

Of coarse @lgbasallote is right.

the kid doesnt understand rational and irrational and you're suggesting "fun" :p

I'm giving him an idea of the cool stuff ahead, it doesn't just stop at rational and irrational :P

sometimes it's nicer to live in fantasies for some time

1/3 has recurring digits but is still expressed as a quotient of two integers, so it is rational.

i'd rather take the blue pill than the red
