numbers on a number line are considered realnot imaginary man, that’s a big dealreal numbers are made up of two different kindsgot irrational and rational on my mindever hear someone being irrational talkgoing on and on, away you wanna walkall the words are jumbled, not makin no sensesame thing with numbers in this rhyme I will commencean irrational number has no pattern at alldecimal keeps goin’, off the page it’s gonna fallirrationals can still be ballers no liemost famous one is a number called π3.141592653589I could keep going but I’m already tiredrational numbers make a lot more senselet’s take 0.5 or five tenthsit’s actually 0.5000no need to write all the zeros you already knowdecimal goes on and on and repeatsno need to keep writing, just keep it neatthat’s a rational number, irrational its notcan be written as a fraction too, that’s sayin’ a lot5/10 reduces to 1/2, nice and clean1 divided by 2 is 0.5 you get what I meananother rational number is radical 16it’s called a perfect square, if you haven’t seenone of these it’s easy, what number times itselfwill give you 16? can do this by yourselfanswer is 4 c’mon ya gotta know it’s realthink about it man it ain’t no big dealuse common sense there ain’t no tricklemme explain the answer right quickwhole numbers can also be written as fractionsfor example 4 can be written as a fractionput the denominator underneath the 4 sonnow you got a fraction of 4/11/3 is rational, can you guess whywell, it’s a fraction that’s an easy one guybut when you convert it, know you what you geta repeating decimal 0.33333333333333333333… you know the restrational numbers are easy to writejust memba that, keep the math tightif you wanna get loose you can approximatethe value of an irrational, just waittake your time think about what it could befor example √2 must be between1 and 2 since 1^{2} is 1and 2^{2} is 4 sontry 1.2 times itself, what d’ya get1.44 too little try again1.3 times itself is 1.69gettin’ a little closer each and every timeanswers gonna be about 1.4times it by itself got 1.96 ortake 1.41 to get more accuratetimes it by itself to get 1.988
