No. The real number line corresponds to rational AND irrational numbers.

yes

Real numbers can be rational or irrational because they both form the number line.

These number can also be represented on real line.

A mathematical approach:Yes they are. Irrational numbers are very real, for example - the square root of two - which is irrational (but can be plotted in a number line without difficulty with a compass and straight edge). All numbers you can think of (even if you cant white them out) are real numbers.They are real, but they can't be expressed as fractions.A philosophical approach:According to ME, there should be a limit. If there is a number which is not ending, we can't say that it is a number because it has not ended yet, its not a complete number. That's why, any number which is not ending is not a number, so irrational numbers and some rational numbers are not numbers and we can't plot them on real line, no matter how much depth we are into it. If there is a number 1.0000... (100 million 0's) ...1, we can plot it by dividing real line into required many parts but we cant plot a number like 1.1111....1111....(up to, we don't know), actually that's not a number yet.Maths should be changed.

Yes irrational numbers are real numbers that are part of the number line,

Irrational numbers are real numbers because they are part of the number line.

Yes. In fact, a number line would be full of an uncountably many infinite number of discontinuities (holes) without them and hence would not be a line, so in fact irrational numbers MUST be placed on the number line in order for it to exist.

That would be the real numbers.

These number can also be represented on real line.

There is no such thing as an irrational number line.
