# Rational Numbers

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

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.
