**Real Numbers In the example to the left, all are real numbers.**

Irrational Numbers Rational Numbers Whole #’s In the example to the left, all are real numbers. Integers

5
**Vocabulary Radicand- the number or expression inside a radical symbol**

Perfect Square- the square of an integer Square Root- Finding the square root of a number is the inverse operation of squaring that number. Remember, the square of a number is that number times itself. Real Number- the set of all rational and irrational numbers Irrational Number- a number that cannot be written as a quotient of two integers
