Suppose q is a rational number. Then if q >= 0 then abs(q) = q.If q < 0 then abs(q) = -q [which is positive].

n-8

8-n

n - 8 is the expression for the difference of eight and a number.'Number' is a variable, so the variable must be a letter (in this case, 'n'). 'The difference' is going to be the subtraction symbol that is in between the 'number' and eight, so it must be n - 8. It could, of course, be 8 - n.

If the number is x, then abs(8-x) or |8-x|

A rational number can be expressed as a ratio of two integers, p/q where q > 0. An irrational number cannot be expressed in such a way.

An irrational number cannot be expressed as a ratio in the form p/q where p and q are integers and q > 0. Integers can be.

8 is an integer, which, by definition, are not irrational. In particular, an irrational number is a number that cannot be written in the form p/q for p and q both integers. However, since 8 clearly is equal to 8k/k for any integer k (and for that matter any nonzero number k), 8 is not irrational

The sum of p and q means (p+q). The difference of p and q means (p-q).
