The Real Number System The Real Number System is divided into two categories: Rational and Irrational. Rational Numbers: Numbers, such as ½ and –3/1 that can be written as a ratio of two integers. Irrational Numbers: Real numbers, such as square root of 2 or , that are not rational. 08/12/11 jwaid

The Real Number System Rational Numbers: Includes integers, whole numbers, natural numbers, and numbers written as the ratio of two integers. Integers: {. . . – 3, – 2, – 1, 0, 1, 2, 3, . . .} Whole Numbers: {0, 1, 2, 3, . . .} Natural Numbers: {1, 2, 3, . . .} 08/12/11 jwaid
