Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3yay so that's a rational number. I can express that as a fraction which is \[\large \frac{10}{1} \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3I don't think there are any more choices for rational numbers... 97 is a prime number and that's in a square root . that's irrational

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3and even if we did simplify the square root of 98 and 99, we will still have a square root left order...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3but not all square roots are irrational ... so we need to be careful on this. if we are left with a square root that can be simplified further .. it becomes rational

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3even if I do take those square roots, I still have something left over and they are irrational.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3dw:1438237057661:dw I can't express these as fractions ... so again they are in the irrational group

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3but for the last one which is square root of 100 I can express it as a fraction, so that's the rational number we are looking for dw:1438237176763:dw
