so a rational number between 5.2 and 5.5 can be: \[\Large \frac{{54}}{{10}} = 5.4\]
Michele_Laino
  • Michele_Laino
since we have: \[\Large \frac{{52}}{{10}} < \frac{{54}}{{10}} < \frac{{55}}{{10}}\]

so 5.4 is the answer

  • Michele_Laino
yes it is the first part of your answer, now we have to find an irrational number

yes

an irrational number is pi=3.14159...
Michele_Laino
  • Michele_Laino
nevertheless 3.14159...<5.2
Michele_Laino
  • Michele_Laino
so we consider this number: 1.7* pi, namely: 1.7*3.14159... now, what is 1.7*3.14159..=...?

um
Michele_Laino

I got this: 5.3407075111026485053864937515752... am I right?

yes thats what i got
Michele_Laino
  • Michele_Laino
and that number is greater than 5.2 and less than 5.5, so it is the requested irrational number
Michele_Laino
  • Michele_Laino
we can rewrite it like below: \[\Large 1.7 \cdot \pi = \frac{{17\pi }}{{10}}\]
Michele_Laino
  • Michele_Laino
and, as you can see, its approximated value to the nearest hundredth is 5.34
Michele_Laino
  • Michele_Laino
and we can write this: \[\Large 5.2 < \frac{{17\pi }}{{10}} < 5.5\]
