4-7 The Real Numbers

Recall that rational numbers can be written as fractions. Rational numbers can also be written as decimals that either terminate or repeat. 4 2 3 = 3.8 = 0.6 1.44 = 1.2 5 3

4-7 The Real Numbers Irrational numbers can only be written as decimals that do not terminate or repeat. If a whole number is not a perfect square, then its square root is an irrational number. 2 â‰ˆ1.4142135623730950488016â€Ś Caution! A repeating decimal may not appear to repeat on a calculator, because calculators show a finite number of digits.

4-7 The setReal of realNumbers numbers consists of the set of The

rational numbers and the set of irrational numbers.

4-7 The Real Numbers The Density Property of real numbers states that between any two real numbers is another real number. This property is also true for rational numbers, but not for whole numbers or integers. For instance, there is no integer between â€“2 and â€“3.

4-7 The Real Numbers Example 7: Applying the Density Property of Real Numbers 2 3 Find a real number between 3 and 3 . 5 5 There are many solutions. One solution is halfway between the two numbers. To find it, add the numbers and divide by 2. 2 3 5 3 +3 รท2 =6 รท2 5 5 5 3
