At your stage of math education, you haven't learned how to handle the squareroot of any negative number yet, whether it's a whole number, a fraction, or adecimal.To indicate the square root of a negative number, temporarily ignore the minus sign,find the square root of the positive number, and then write the letter " i " next tothe answer. That shows that the number is imaginary, and in a few years, you'lllearn what that means and how to work with it.

Yes, the square root of 3 is a real number. (It is not imaginary. The square root of a negative number is imaginary.) The square root of 3 is not a rational number. It cannot be written as a fraction.

The fraction becomes less negative. It remains a negative fraction but moves nearer to 0.

just have the fraction be negative(do this by putting the negative symbol on the denominator, numerator or before the fraction).

In the same way that you would answer a fraction subtract another fraction. The result could be either positive or negative, just as is the case with negative whole numbers.
