-- Every whole number that's less than 5 is a rational number less than 5.

-- Every terminating decimal that's less than 5, and some that don't terminate,

is a rational number less than 5.

-- Every number less than 5 that you can completely write with digits

is a rational number less than 5.

### What are all the numbers that are rational and less than -5?

Here, the given rational number is 5 and it is also a whole number. It can also be expressed in fraction form as 5/1. We can determine all the whole numbers less than 5 as a rational number. Hence, 1, 2, 3, and 4 are the rational numbers less than 5.

### Is it possible to add 2 rational numbers and get a sum that is less than both the numbers you added?

I think so. -4 and -5 are both rational numbers. Their sum is -9, which is less than both of them individually.

### What set of numbers does -5 belongs?

Prime and odd numbers

### explain how to use a number line to find sum of two rational numbers?

number line. Writing numbers on a number line makes it easy to see which numbers are greater or less. Negative numbers (−) Positive numbers (+) (The line goes right and left forever.) The number on the left is less than the number on the right. Examples: 5 less than 8; 5 less than 8; 5 is less than 8; 5 is less than 8; 5

### Is 5 irrational or rational?

5 is rational. Rational numbers are numbers that can be written as a fraction. Irrational numbers cannot be expressed as a fraction.

### Is 5 out of 11 rational or irrational?

5/11 is rational. Rational numbers are numbers that can be written as a fraction. Irrational numbers cannot be expressed as a fraction.

### If A is a set containing all rational numbers that are less than 5 Is there a rational number q in set A such that all other numbers in set A are less than q?

Answer: NO Explanation: Let's look at an example to see how this works. A is all rational numbers less than 5. So one element of A might be 1 since that is less than 5 or 1/2, or -1/2, or even 0. Now if we pick 1/2 or 0, clearly that numbers that are greater than them in the set. So what we are really asking, is there a largest rational number less than 5. In a set A, we define the define the supremum to be the smallest real number that is greater than or equal to every number in A. So do rationals have a supremum? That is really the heart of the question. Now that you understand that, let's state an important finding in math: If an ordered set A has the property that every nonempty subset of A having an upper bound also has a least upper bound, then A is said to have the least-upper-bound property In this case if we pick any number very close to 5, we can find another number even closer because the rational numbers are dense in the real numbers. So the conclusion is that the rational number DO NOT have the least upper bound property. This means there is no number q that fulfills your criteria.

### What can you conclude about the types of rational numbers that have repeating decimals?

In their rational form, the denominators have factors other than 2 and 5.

### Is 5 out of 13 rational or irrational?

By 5 out of 13 I assume you mean 5/13 and if so than it is rational because irrational numbers cannot be written as fractions.
