Home | Online Math Tutoring | Pre-Algebra Tutoring | **Ordering of Rational Numbers**

A **rational number** is one that is a part of a whole denoted as a fraction, decimal or a percentage. It is a **number** which cannot be expressed as a fraction of two integers (or we can say that it cannot be expressed as a ratio).

For instance, let’s consider the square root of 3. It is irrational and cannot be expressed by two integers.

It is an **irrational number** because it cannot be denoted as a fraction with just two integers.

**Integers and Rational numbers**

They are the **numbers **you usually count and they will continue upto infinity.

Whole **numbers** are all natural **numbers** including 0.

Example: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4…

**Integers** are all whole **numbers** and their negative sides too.

Example….. -6,-5,-4, -3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6…

Every integer is a rational number, as each integer *n* can be written in the form .

For example **5** = and so **5** is a rational number. However, numbers like ,,,, and – are also rational; since they are fractions whose numerator and denominator are integers.

**Arrange the following integers in the ascending order:**

- -17, 1, 0, -15, 16,8, 33, 6
- -44, -66, 0, 23, 41, 55, 15, 11, 10, -1, -2

**Identify whether the following is rational or irrational number.**

- 0.5
- 9.0
- 5

##### Answer key
