Why does a rational number plus an irrational number equal an irrational number?

from another wikianswers page: say that 'a' is rational, and that 'b' is irrational. assume that a + b equals a rational number, called c. so a + b = c subtract a from both sides. you get b = c - a. but c - a is a rational number subtracted from a rational number, which should equal another rational number. However, b is an irrational number in our equation, so our assumption that a + b equals a rational number must be wrong.

Why is the sum of an rational number and irrational number an irrational number?

The rational numbers form a field. In particular, the sum or difference of two rational numbers is rational. (This is easy to check directly). Suppose now that a + b = c, with a rational and c rational. Since b = c - a, it would have to be rational too. Thus you can't ever have a rational plus an irrational equalling a rational.
