Best Answer

Yes, as long as the two nonzero numbers are themselves rational. (Since a rational number is any number that can be expressed as the quotient of two rational numbers, or any number that can be written as a fraction using only rational numbers.) If one of the nonzero numbers is not rational, the quotient will most likely be irrational.

No.

Yes, always. That is the definition of a rational number.

Yes.

Yes, it is.

Because that is how a rational number is defined!

Yes, by definition.

yes

I had this name question for homework :| no

Yes

Not if the second rational number is 0: in that case the quotient is not defined. Otherwise the answer is yes.

Yes, that's true. * * * * * Unless the second number is 0, in which case the quotient is not defined!

Actually the product of a nonzero rational number and another rational number will always be rational.The product of a nonzero rational number and an IRrational number will always be irrational. (You have to include the "nonzero" caveat because zero times an irrational number is zero, which is rational)

In general, no. It is possible though. (2pi)/pi is rational. pi2/pi is irrational. The ratio of two rationals numbers is always rational and the ratio of a rational and an irrational is always irrational.

Yes.

A rational number is always the result of dividing an integer when the divisor is nonzero.

It is always irrational.

No. If we let x be irrational, then 0/x = 0 is a counterexample. However, if we consider nonzero rational numbers, then our conjecture is true. We shall prove this by contradiction. Suppose we have nonzero rational numbers x and y, and an irrational number z, such that x/z = y. Since z is not equal to 0, x = yz. Since y is not equal to 0, x/y = z. Since x/y is a quotient of rational numbers, x/y is rational. Therefore, z is rational, contradicting our assumption that z was irrational. QED.

Yes, always.

No. It's always irrational.

Yes, a rational number is a real number. A rational number is a number that can be written as the quotient of two integers, a/b, where b does not equal 0. Integers are real numbers. The quotient of two real numbers is always a real number. The terms "rational" and "irrational" apply to the real numbers. There is no corresponding concept for any other types of numbers.

They will always be rational numbers.

Yes, always.

Yes. All numbers are rational numbers except repeating decimals like 1.3(repeating). * * * * * Repeating decimals are also rationals. However, the quotient is not defined if the second number is the integer zero!

It is an incomplete definition of a rational number.

All nonzero numbers are significant.
