Irrational Numbers
An Irrational Number is a real number that cannot be written as a simple fraction.

Irrational means not Rational

Examples:

Rational Numbers

OK. A Rational Number can be written as a Ratio of two integers (ie a simple fraction).

Example: 1.5 is rational, because it can be written as the ratio 3/2
Example: 7 is rational, because it can be written as the ratio 7/1
Example 0.333... (3 repeating) is also rational, because it can be written as the ratio 1/3

Irrational Numbers

But some numbers cannot be written as a ratio of two integers ...

...they are called Irrational Numbers.

It is irrational because it cannot be written as a ratio (or fraction),
not because it is crazy!
