A rational number is a number that can be expressed as the ratio of two integers. For instance, 0.5 is a rational number, which is 1/2

However, in the defined "real number set", not all numbers can be expressed as the division of two integers. Although historically it took a bit of time for us to accept this, a simple proof of the the fact that \(\sqrt{2}\) is irrational is suffice

There are an infinite number of rational AND irrational numbers between 1-10...

  • anonymous
give me an example why please
inkyvoyd

an important property of the real numbers is that they are continuous - in a sense, there are an INFINITE "number" of numbers in between any two different numbers, no matter how small the difference

There are actually "far more" irrational numbers than rational numbers.

so in 1-3 there is many aswell?
inkyvoyd
  • inkyvoyd
Well, comparing the two expressions is indeterminant I believe

@Marlins0412 , the key thing to know is that there are an infinite number of rational and irrational numbers
inkyvoyd
  • inkyvoyd
rational numbers can be expressed as the division of two integers, while irrational numbers cannot
