Why every irrational number is also a rational number but not every rational number is a natural number?

Every irrational number is NOT a rational number. For example, sqrt(2) is irrational but not rational. A natural number is a counting number or a whole number, such as 1, 2, 3, etc. A rational number is one that can be expressed as a ratio of two whole numbers, which may be positive or negative. So, -2 is a rational number but not a counting number (it is an integer, though). Also, 2/3 is a rational number but not a whole, counting number or a natural number.


Is one natural number divided by another natural number always a natural number?

No, 4/3 is 1.333333... which is not a natural number. However, any natural number divided by a natural number will always be a rational number. This is due to the definition of a rational number as being able to be expressed as p/q where p and q are integers. Thus, numbers where p and q are natural numbers represent a subset of all the rational numbers.
