Answer by stanbon(57347)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! state whether the following numbers are rational or irrational . if they are irrational and expressed in the form of p/q where p and q are co prime integers then what can you say about the prime factors of q ? a) 279.034 rational = 279034/1000 ----------------------- b) x = 3.010010001... irrational ------- c)39.546782 rational = 39546782/1,000,000 ------------------ d) x = 2.3476817681 rational 100x = 234.76817681... 10^6x = 2347681.76817681... (10^6-10^2)x = 2347447/999900 ------------------------------- e) x = 59.120120012000... irrational ======================= Cheers, Stan H. ================
