Go through each definition, and see if -22 belongs in each set. Notice that the definitions are not in the same order as your choices.

-22 is definitely an integer, but it is part of another set in the choices too.

irrational numbers?
mathstudent55
  • mathstudent55
No. Look at the definition of rational. Can -22 be written as a fraction with an integer in the numerator and an integer in the denominatior?

  • mathstudent55
For example, \(\dfrac{-22}{1} \) Is this fraction equal to -22? Are -22 and 1 integers?

Hmm so is it rational?
mathstudent55
  • mathstudent55
Correct. -22 can be written as a fraction of integers in may ways. Here is another way: \(\dfrac{-44}{2} \) -44 and 2 are both integers, and that fraction equals -22, so -22 is a rational number.

Is it okay if i copy and paste ur notes to my notebook? for learning

Yes, be my guest. Your problem is already answered, but for a little more understanding, read on. Now we can ask a question. Then what is an irrational number? A number such as \(\pi\) which is the circumference divided by the diameter of a circle. \(\sqrt 2\), \(\sqrt 3\) These numbers cannot be written as a fraction of integers. You may have seen an approximation of \(\pi\) written as \(\dfrac{22}{7} \), but that is only a rational approximation. \(\pi\) is an irrational number.
