Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Here are some quick definitions: Integer: Whole number (ie number with no decimal parts). Natural number: Any whole number that is positive and not zero (eg: 1, 2, 3, 4...) Rational Number: Number that can be written as a fraction of two integers. Irrational Number: A number that CANNOT be written as a fraction of two integers. Real Number: At the moment, it's pretty much any number you can think of. So every number is a real number (for now). You'll find on later in algebra that there are other types of numbers that are not real numbers.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay thank you. and then the book has an example of the square root of 144= 12 belongs to the set of integers, the set of rationals, and the set of reals... do i need to find a number like they did? (12)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ummm, the square root of (144) doesn't exist. Did you mean minus the square root of plus 144?
