What is a rational equation
I basically need to know what's the difference form rational equation to a irrational equation?
Do you mean expression or equation?
Okay, let me see what I can do for you<3
one equation for which at least one solution is a rational number, and the other an irrational number.
I honestly not to sure what it is....little confusing
http://www.icoachmath.com/math_dictionary/Rational_Equation.html A rational equation is one involving a ratio of expressions, that is, one expression (such as a polynomial) divided by another. In a quick Web search for the phrase "irrational equation", the only mathematical references I found were in lists of topics covered in high school algebra courses. Thus it appears that this is a pedagogical term only, not one that mathematicians use in the "real world" (after graduation). The closest I could see to a definition is something like "an equation involving radicals". I would not use the term "irrational equation" for this; I'd just say "radical equation".

Are you sure you don't mean rational and irrational numbers?
no...thats what my professor typed
I'm so happy to help<3
You're so very welcome Md
Well, it seems rational equations contain fractional terms and irrational contain square roots...
An irrational equation is "an equation having an unknown raised to some fractional power. Also known as radical equation. " Read more: http://www.answers.com/topic/irrational-equation#ixzz1x6c8g5MS
