You know that education happens when you actually do the reading and figure it out for yourself: being spoon-fed answers means you learn nothing except how to finish a homework assignment. As you climb the academic ladder - you'll find that you, more and more, become your own teacher as you learn to research, think critically, identify logical fallacies, note internal cohesion of any proposition, and reason - in increasing levels of abstractions (animals can't do this). The decision you make right now to get "hand outs" from Ask subscribers sets a pattern in your brain that will metastasize beyond having someone do your homework - ever hear of "thinking for yourself"? There's a reason why humans prize this emblem of individuality over yet another autocratic order taker, helpless without someone telling them how to think or behave - like sheep. Sheep do not advance humanity nor even themselves.

An irrational number is any real number that cannot be expressed as a fraction in the form of a/b, where "a" and "b" are integers and b is any number but zero. A rational number is an integer or a fraction. A real number is any rational or irrational number. An example of an irrational number is pi, while 1.5 or 3/2 is a rational number.

Real no. is any no. which can be represented on a number line.
Example : -1, 6.7, 13, -3....etc.
Rational no. is no. which is written in p/q form. (can say fraction).
Example : 22/7 , 5/3 , 2/1....etc.
Irrational no. is a no. in decimal form which has never ending digits after decimal point....
Example : 4.33676559982....... , 3.14159265359.....

A rational number is a fraction, decimal or whole number. Irrational numbers are numbers like pi, which never end. A repeating decimal is rational however. Ex: rational: 2.9 6 1/2 10/5 irrational: pi, 22/7
