Whole numbers = W = { 0,1,2,3,4,… }

Integers = Z = {…,-3,-2,-1,0,1,2,3,… }

Rational numbers = Q = { 2 / 3 , -5 / 7, -10 / -3,…} .

The elements of this set is in p/q form.q ≠ 0.

Irrational numbers = π ( π = 3.1415926535897932384626433832795 (and more...), √2, √3 ,many cube roots, golden ratio Φ, e Euler’s number etc.

Since all rational and irrational numbers can be represented on the number line, we call the number line as real no. line.

Real no. = R = { Natural numbers, whole numbers, Integers, Rational numbers, Irrational numbers}

A real no. is either rational or irrational.

There is a real nos. corresponding to every point on the number line. Also, corresponding to every real no. there is a point on the number line.

1) Every irrational number is a real no. State (T/F). Justify your reason.

The above statement is True because real no. is a set of rational as well as irrational numbers.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

2) Are the square roots of all positive integers irrational? If not, prove with an example.

No, the square roots of all positive integers are not irrational.

For example, √4 = 2

√9 = 3

Here, 2 and 3 are rational number.

1) Every point on the number line corresponds to -------- number.(Ans)

2) Every real no. is either ------- number or ------ number.(Ans)
