Rational Numbers Irrational Numbers Difference between Rational and Irrational Numbers

Before you understand the difference between rational and irrational numbers, you are advised to read:

What is Ratio ?
What are Integers ?

Rational Numbers: A rational number is the one which can be written in the form of p/q , where both p & q are integers and q is not equal to zero

Few examples of rational numbers are 2/3, -28/31, 3/-8, -100/-110

Irrational Numbers: An irrational number is the one which cannot be written in the form of p/q .

For example: √ 13, √ 15 , √ 10 , Π (pie)
