A rational number is a number that can be written as a simple fraction, in which both the numerator (the number on top) and the denominator (the number on the bottom) are whole numbers.


Are examples of rational numbers:

* The number 8 is a rational number because it can be written as the fraction 8/1.
* Likewise, 3/4 is a rational number because it can be written as a fraction.
* Even a big, clunky fraction like 7,324,908/56,003,492 is rational, simply because it can be written as a fraction.


Some irrational numbers are:

π = 3.141592…
square root of 2 = 1.414213…
