The sum, or difference, of two Irrational Numbers can be rational, or irrational. For example, if A = square root of 2 and B = square root of 3, both the sum and difference are irrational. If A = (1 + square root of 2), and B = square root of 2, then, while both are irrational, the difference (equal to 1) is rational.
