Sure; for example, 10 + pi is irrational, 10 - pi is irrational. Both are positive. If you add them, you get 20.

Q: Can you add two positive irrational numbers to get an rational number?

yes * * * * * No. Rational and irrational numbers are two DISJOINT subsets of the real numbers. That is, no rational number is irrational and no irrational is rational.

Positive rational = 0.0000000001Positive irrational = 0.0000000001*pi

Next to any rational number is an irrational number, but next to an irrational number can be either a rational number or an irrational number, but it is infinitely more likely to be an irrational number (as between any two rational numbers are an infinity of irrational numbers).

It will be irrational. Rational numbers are numbers that can be written as a fraction. Irrational numbers cannot be expressed as a fraction.

No, no number can be both rational and irrational.

Positive numbers can be either rational or irrational.

no

there are infinitely many positive rational and irrational numbers smaller than .0001. Try .00001. Or how about π/100000.

No. If it was a rational number, then it wouldn't be an irrational number.

yes * * * * * No. Rational and irrational numbers are two DISJOINT subsets of the real numbers. That is, no rational number is irrational and no irrational is rational.

No, they are complementary sets. No rational number is irrational and no irrational number is rational.Irrational means not rational.

-- There's an infinite number of rational numbers. -- There's an infinite number of irrational numbers. -- There are more irrational numbers than rational numbers. -- The difference between the number of irrational numbers and the number of rational numbers is infinite.

No. Real numbers are divided into two DISJOINT (non-overlapping) sets: rational numbers and irrational numbers. A rational number cannot be irrational, and an irrational number cannot be rational.

Actually there are more irrational numbers than rational numbers. Most square roots, cubic roots, etc. are irrational (not rational). For example, the square of any positive integer is either an integer or an irrational number. The numbers e and pi are both irrational. Most expressions that involve those numbers are also irrational.

-6.3 is rational. Rational numbers are numbers that can be written as a fraction. Irrational numbers cannot be expressed as a fraction.
