Rational and Irrational

Rational numbers come in three forms:

1. Integers (4 = 4/1)

2. Fractions - where both numbers are non-zero integers

3.Terminating or recurring decimals (0.125 = 1/8)                        C

Irrational numbers

These are messy and cannot be written down as they are never-ending, non-repeating decimals
