# √15/√3 is written in the form p/q, q ≠ 0 and so it is a rational number. Is the given statement true or false? Justify

**Solution:**

It is given that

√15/√3

We can write it as

= √5 × 3/ √3

We know that √a × b = √a × √b

= √5 × √3/ √3

= √5

Which is an __irrational number__.

Therefore, the statement is false.
