Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Natural Numbers (also called Counting Numbers): 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, ... Whole Numbers: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, ... Integers: ..., 3, 2, 1, 0, 1, 2, 3, ... Rational Number: a number that can be written as a fraction of integers Irrational Number: a number that is not rational

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Go through each definition, and see if 22 belongs in each set. Notice that the definitions are not in the same order as your choices.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.022 is definitely an integer, but it is part of another set in the choices too.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No. 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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0For example, \(\dfrac{22}{1} \) Is this fraction equal to 22? Are 22 and 1 integers?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hmm so is it rational?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Correct. 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, 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.
