 Question 48342: i'm not sure if this question is in the right section. its not from a textbook, it is from an algebra II honors summer packet. it says: name the sets of numbers to which each number belongs. use N, W, Z, Q, I, or R. and the numbers are: -1/3, sqrt5, and pi. to me it is very vague, but that is all the information i was given. maybe the letters have a specific meaning that i was never taught. any help at all would be greatly appreciated.
