List Of Rational Numbers

In terms of mathematics, we can define rational number as the ratio of two
integer numbers in the form of a / b such that b is not equal to the zero.

Means a and b both are integer number and the denominator can never be
equal to the zero. Now, it is possible that denominator is equal to integer like 1
then we can say that each integer is also a rational number.

Rational numbers are denoted by a set of numbers and we use ‘R’ as symbol to
represent the rational numbers. which normally denotes all the rational
numbers.

For example, we can give a list of rational numbers as: 2 / 3, 4 / 3, 6 / 7, 3, 2 / 5,
45 / 56, 1 / 5, 4 / 9 etc.. are the number of rational numbers, because there are
the following conditions of the rational number, means numerator and
denominator both are integers and denominator is not equal to the zero. All the
set of rational numbers are countable and is ratio integers.

Rational numbers are those numbers which can be represented in the form of
p/q where p and q are real numbers and q cannot be zero. We generally use “q”
to represent rational numbers in mathematical world.

They can be represented in two ways- either in fraction or in decimal forms and
contain the set of integers. If a/b and b/c are two rational numbers then the two
rational numbers are equal only if ac=bd. Performing any operation using
rational numbers is just like using fractions.

Some important points on rational numbers:

1. All the rational numbers are subset of real numbers or we can say all rational
numbers lie in real line.

2. Countless rational numbers lie between two rational numbers.

3. There can be infinite numbers of rational numbers between two integers.

4. Any integer can be represented as rational number.

5. Rational numbers are countable numbers as we can easily count them.
Rational numbers are very densely populated as I mentioned above that there
can be infinite rational number between two integers.

We can also find many rational numbers between two numbers. We can
perform many operations on rational numbers like addition, subtraction, division
and multiplication
