## anonymous one year ago Find a rational and an irrational number between 9.5 and 9.7.

I'm going to throw out 9.6 as a possible rational number between 9.5 and 9.7. Too bad - that was the easy one. Now, how about irrational? Hint: 9.5^2 = 90.55 and 9.7^2 = 94.09

I don't understand this plz give a sampler

3. tkhunny

I did, already. Are there any nice, NOT perfect squares, between 90.55 and 94.09?

4. anonymous

yes 90.00

5. tkhunny

No, that's outside the range I gave.

/91.00 92.00 93.00

7. tkhunny

That's it. Is $$\sqrt{92}$$ in the right range?

8. anonymous

YES

Done. Find the decimal equivalent to 100ths. Calculator should do that.
