# Are there two irrational numbers whose sum and product both are rationals? Justify.

**Solution:**

Let us consider two __irrational numbers__ 3 + √2 and 3 - √2

We know that

Sum of two irrational numbers = 3 + √2 + 3 - √2

= 6

Here 6 is a __rational number__

__Product__ of two irrational numbers = (3 + √2) (3 - √2)

= 9 - 3√2 + 3√2 - 2

= 7

Therefore, there are two irrational numbers whose sum and product both are rationals.
