A rational number is one that can be expressed as a ratio of two integers: thus x = p/q where q is not zero. An irrational number cannot be expressed in such a way.

One consequence is that a rational number, in decimal form, is either a terminating decimal or an infinite recurring decimal. An irrational number has an infinite decimal from that is non-repeating.

Examples of rational numbers: 2, -3/4, -3.756, 18.23464646.. (recurring)

Examples of Irrational Numbers: sqrt(2), pi, phi (the Golden Ratio), e (Euler's number) as well as their negatives.

rational and irrational

-- 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.

Yes. Rational numbers are numbers that can be written as a fraction. Irrational numbers cannot be expressed as a fraction.

Infinitely many. In fact, between any two different real numbers, there are infinitely many rational numbers, and infinitely many irrational numbers. (More precisely, beth-zero rational numbers, and beth-one irrational numbers - that is, there are more irrational numbers than rational numbers in any such interval.)

Directed numbers have a positive or negative sign associated with them. (The positive sign may be implied). They can be rational fractions (including mixed numbers) or irrational. Integers cannot be fractions or irrational.

The difference can be rational or irrational.5 + sqrt(3) and 2 + sqrt(3) are both irrational numbers but their difference is[5 + sqrt(3)] - [2 + sqrt(3)] = 3, which is rational.

The sum or the difference between two irrational numbers could either be rational or irrational, however, it should be a real number.

No. sqrt(3) - sqrt(2) is irrational.

All natural numbers are rational numbers. No irrational numbers are natural numbers.

Yes. 2+sqrt(3) and 5+sqrt(3). Their difference is 3, which is rational.
