**"rational numbers"**. What are rational numbers? What does the term rational numbers mean? I don't know most of these, so I read from the online textbook.

Rational numbers simply means numbers that can be written as a simple

**fraction**. Example of a rational number is 8/4. The numbers in that fraction are the

**integers**. Which is 8 and 4 (example). Rational numbers also means a ratio of 2 integers . One term we're all familiar with is integers, which we learned in grade 7, and grade 8. Integers are any whole number.

**Irrational numbers**are numbers that can't be written as a fraction. When you write it in decimal form, it goes on forever, without a pattern. An example of an irrational number is the square root of 7, or the value of pi. Both have decimals that go on forever, without a pattern. You also can't write both as a simple fraction.

Those are the major things I think we're going to learn in this chapter. Feel free to comment or add on to what I missed. :)

Good Job Angela! I like how you made the important words a different colour so that they stand out (:

Great work Angela! I liked how you made the more important words stand out. It's very understandable, and very neat. Keep it up!
