On this page you will get Information about Irrational Numbers. So definitely read the post completely.

On the previous page, I have shared information about **Composite Numbers**,** Prime Numbers** and **Co-Prime Numbers**, so you can get all the information by reading those posts.

Let us read and understand the information on Irrational Number on this page.

## What are Irrational Number

If the square of a number is a negative number, then such number are called Irrational Number.

In other words – numbers made up of **Real Numbers** and Unreal Number are Called Unreal numbers.

**Example :-** √-3, √-5, √-3/4, √7/-13, √11/-17.

**Real numbers are written as :-** √-3, √-5, √-3/4, √7/-13, √11/-17.

### How to Identify Irrational Number

Irrational numbers are real number that are not rational, i.e., cannot be expressed as a fraction p/q.

Where, p and q are integers such that q ≠ 0, number which cannot be expressed in the form of irrational number are called irrational number.

Irrational number are always written as ( √ ).

**Like :-** √2, √5, √7, √33 √73……….

## Properties of Irrational Number

**1.** When two numbers, one rational and one irrational, are added, we get irrational number.

**As :-**

- 3 + 4√5 = 3 + 4√5 (These are irrational number.)
- 5√3 + 7√3 = 10√3 (These are irrational number.)

**2.** If a rational number and an irrational number are multiplied, we will get an irrational number only.

**As :-**

- 5 × 2√3 = 10√3 (These are irrational number.)
- 3√2 × 4 = 12√2 (These are irrational number.)

**3.** The product of two irrational number can be either rational or irrational number.

**As :-**

- √5 × 2√5 = 10 (It is a rational number.)
- 3√7 × 4√7 = 84 (It is a rational number.)

**4.** The least of more than one irrational number may be rational or Irrational Number.

**Famous Irrational Number**

There are many numbers in mathematical numbers that can be written as Irrational Number.

**For Example :-** √2, √5, √17, √29 etc.

But there are many numbers which cannot be written in the form of irrational number, so the famous irrational number are shown below.

## Irrational Number Questions and Answers

**Question 1. What are irrational number?**

Answer :- Number which cannot be written in the form of p/q are called irrational number. As; π, φ, √5, √7, √13 etc.

**Question 2. Is π (pi) an irrational number?**

Answer :- π is a mathematical constant whose numerical value is equal to the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter, yet the numerical value of π is not known, so it is considered an irrational number.

**Question 3. Are √2 and √3 irrational number?**

Answer :- Yes, both of these are irrational number because they cannot be written in the form of ratio i.e. in the form of p/q.

**Question 4. Is √1 an irrational number?**

Answer :- √1 is not an irrational number because √1 is a perfect square. which can be written as 1/1.

**Question 5. Is √16 a rational number?**

Answer :- Yes, √16 is a rational number because √16 is a perfect square. The square root of √16 is 4, which is a rational number that can be written in the form (4/1).
