An irrational number is any real number that cannot exist as a ratio and/or fraction. The square root of 2 is an irrational number because it is not a perfect square. 64 is a rational square root (number) because of 8.

A real number is a value that represents a quantity continuously. Ex: 5, 8, 4/3, 3.14159265, and even irrational numbers. Natural numbers include all the basic counting numbers, except negatives.
