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.

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

What is the order from largest to smallest for whole number integers rational numbers natural number irrational numbers and real numbers?

Such numbers cannot be ordered in the manner suggested by the question because: For every whole number there are integers, rational numbers, natural numbers, irrational numbers and real numbers that are bigger. For every integer there are whole numbers, rational numbers, natural numbers, irrational numbers and real numbers that are bigger. For every rational number there are whole numbers, integers, natural numbers, irrational numbers and real numbers that are bigger. For every natural number there are whole numbers, integers, rational numbers, irrational numbers and real numbers that are bigger. For every irrational number there are whole numbers, integers, rational numbers, natural numbers and real numbers that are bigger. For every real number there are whole numbers, integers, rational numbers, natural numbers and irrational numbers that are bigger. Each of these kinds of numbers form an infinite sets but the size of the sets is not the same. Georg Cantor showed that the cardinality of whole numbers, integers, rational numbers and natural number is the same order of infinity: aleph-null. The cardinality of irrational numbers and real number is a bigger order of infinity: aleph-one.

Every time. No exceptions.


What irrational numbers can turn into a rational number?

No irrational number can turn into a rational number by itself: you have to do something to it. If you multiply any irrational number by 0, the answer is 0, which is rational. So, given the correct procedure, every irrational number can be turned into a rational number.
