    A rational number has a decimal representation that terminates or that repeats in a pattern. Examples of rational numbers in the range. 5.3 5.33333... (e.g. 5 1/3) 5.35 5.363636... (e.g. 5 12/33) 5.4 5.44444... (i.e. 5 4/9) 5.49 (i.e. 5 49/100) For an irrational number, it's probably easiest to think of a square root that is in that range. 5.2² = 27.04 5.5² = 30.25 So a couple answers that would work are: √28 and √29
