Fraction, terminating
decimal, rational #
• This # is a?
• Is this #
Rational or Irrational
Why?
It is rational because
terminating decimals are
rational.
Solution
Example 2
• Write all classifications • This # is a?
• This is a sq. rt.
that apply to this #.
• What can we do to
make this sq. rt. More
32
simple to solve?
2
• We can divide 32 by 2 and get
16.
• This # is also an?
16
• This is also a whole # and an
integer.

Whole #, Integer, Rational
#
Solution
• Is this #
Rational or Irrational
Why? It is rational because
integers and whole #’s are part
of the rational family.
