Examples All terminating and repeating decimals can be expressed in this way so they are irrational numbers. a b 4 5 2 2 3 = 8 3 6 = 6 1 2.7 = 27 10 0.625 = 5 8 34.56 = 3456 100 -3 = 3 1 - 0.3 = 1 3 0.27 = 3 11 0.142857 = 1 7 0.7 = 7 10 S.JASMINE SUGIRTHA 2 MATHS Rational: Rational and Irrational Numbers Rational Numbers A rational number is any number that can be expressed as the ratio of two integers. All terminating and repeating decimals can be expressed in this way so they are irrational numbers. a b Show that the terminating decimals below are rational. 0.6 3.8 56.1 3.45 2.157 6 10 38 10 561 10 345 100 2157 1000 Rational S.JASMINE SUGIRTHA 3 MATHS PowerPoint Presentation: Rational and Irrational Numbers Rational Numbers A rational number is any number that can be expressed as the ratio of two integers. All terminating and repeating decimals can be expressed in this way so they are irrational numbers. a b To show that a repeating decimal is rational. Example 1 To show that 0.333… is rational. Let x = 0.333… 10 x = 3.33… 9 x = 3 x = 3/9 x = 1/3 Example 2 To show that 0.4545… is rational. Let x = 0.4545… 100 x = 45.45… 99 x = 45 x = 45/99 x = 5/11 S.JASMINE SUGIRTHA 4 MATHS PowerPoint Presentation: Rational and Irrational Numbers Rational Numbers A rational number is any number that can be expressed as the ratio of two integers. All terminating and repeating decimals can be expressed in this way so they are irrational numbers. a b Question 1 Show that 0.222… is rational. Let x = 0.222… 10 x = 2.22… 9 x = 2 x = 2/9 Question 2 Show that 0.6363… is rational. Let x = 0.6363… 100 x = 63.63… 99 x = 63 x = 63/99 x = 7/11 S.JASMINE SUGIRTHA 5 MATHS PowerPoint Presentation: Rational and Irrational Numbers Rational Numbers A rational number is any number that can be expressed as the ratio of two integers. All terminating and repeating decimals can be expressed in this way so they are irrational numbers. a b 999 x = 273 x = 273/999 9999 x = 1234 x = 1234/9999 Question 3 Show that 0.273is rational. Let x = 0.273 1000 x = 273.273 x = 91/333 Question 4 Show that 0.1234 is rational. Let x = 0.1234 10000 x = 1234.1234 S.JASMINE SUGIRTHA 6 MATHS PowerPoint Presentation: Rational and Irrational Numbers Rational Numbers A rational number is any number that can be expressed as the ratio of two integers. All terminating and repeating decimals can be expressed in this way so they are irrational numbers. a b By looking at the previous examples can you spot a quick method of determining the rational number for any given repeating decimal. 0.1234 1234 9999 0.273 273 999 0.45 45 99 0.3 3 9 S.JASMINE SUGIRTHA 7 MATHS PowerPoint Presentation: Rational and Irrational Numbers Rational Numbers A rational number is any number that can be expressed as the ratio of two integers. All terminating and repeating decimals can be expressed in this way so they are irrational numbers. a b 0.1234 1234 9999 0.273 273 999 0.45 45 99 0.3 3 9 Write the repeating part of the decimal as the numerator and write the denominator as a sequence of 9’s with the same number of digits as the numerator then simplify where necessary.

S.JASMINE SUGIRTHA 9 MATHS Irrational: Irrational a b Rational and Irrational Numbers Irrational Numbers An irrational number is any number that cannot be expressed as the ratio of two integers. 1 1 Pythagoras The history of irrational numbers begins with a discovery by the Pythagorean School in ancient Greece. A member of the school discovered that the diagonal of a unit square could not be expressed as the ratio of any two whole numbers. The motto of the school was “All is Number” (by which they meant whole numbers). Pythagoras believed in the absoluteness of whole numbers and could not accept the discovery. The member of the group that made it was Hippasus and he was sentenced to death by drowning.

It took mathematicians hundreds of years to show that the majority of Real Numbers are in fact irrational. The rationals and irrationals are needed together in order to complete the continuum that is the set of “Real Numbers”.

However, other numbers involving roots such as those shown cannot be reduced to a rational form. Any number of the form which cannot be written as a rational number is called a surd. All irrational numbers are non-terminating , non-repeating decimals. Their decimal expansion form shows no pattern whatsoever. Other irrational numbers include and e , ( Euler’s number ) S.JASMINE SUGIRTHA 13 MATHS PowerPoint Presentation: Rational and Irrational Numbers Multiplication and division of surds.

Examples of irrationals S.JASMINE SUGIRTHA 17 MATHS PowerPoint Presentation: Rational and Irrational Numbers Combining Rationals and Irrationals Multiplication and division of an irrational number by another irrational can often lead to a rational number.
