Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Hey Audie :) "ALL rational numbers are integers" To show a counter example: Find a rational number which is NOT an integer. That will contradict the ALL of the original statement.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What is an integer? Mathematically, integers are set of whole numbers (including zero), and the negative whole numbers: {0, 1, 2, 3, 4, ...} + {1, 2, 3, 4, ...} In programming, an integer is limited to 32 bits of information, from 2,147,483,648 to 2,147,483,647.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Notice that the 4th option is clearly false. pi isn't a rational number. we don't care about the set of irrational numbers, the statement has nothing to do with them.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.21 is a rational number. I'm saying that 1 is also an integer. Hmm, nope. That supports the statement. It doesn't contradict it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0its not a integer because it says that but i dont think its rational because you cant rationalize it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2a rational number is a number which can be written as a ratio of integers. Example: 5/2 is a rational number because it's an integer on top and on bottom. 0.15 is rational because we can write it as \(\large\rm \frac{15}{100}\). Again a ratio of whole numbers.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2So you've determined: 1/2 is a rational number 1/2 is not an integer Therefore ALL rational numbers cannot possibly be integers. Yessss good job \c:/
