Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It is a rational number if it can be represented exactly by a fraction of integers. If you claim that it is a rational number, you have to be able to do that. I cannot! Can you show me the integer fraction that represents exactly sqrt(18)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ya I know. So sqrt(95) is a rational number right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It is a rational number if you can find an integer fraction to represent the number, e.g. 5/6 is a rational number, because it can be represented by a fraction of integers.
