Rational and Irrational Numbers
It’s finally the end of the school year, and your class is having a huge end of the year party - with free pizza 🍕! You’re waiting on a slice of pizza, and your teacher turns to you and asks, “Would you like 0.3674643... slices of pizza?”
Wait WHAT? How could the teacher possibly cut a slice that size? You can’t be given this amount of pizza because your teacher offered you an amount that is irrational.
Just like people, we have rational and irrational numbers. So, how exactly do we know when a number is rational or irrational?
