A Rational Number Can Be Written as the Ratio of One ________


Question: A rational number can be written as the ratio of one ________ to another and can be represented by a repeating or ________ decimal.

Numbers that can be expressed in a/b or fraction form is a rational number where a is any integer and b is a non zero integers.

Answer: Integer, recurring decimal

We will use the definition of the rational number to explain this question.

Explanation:

The rational number can be expressed in the form of a/b where a and b are integers and b is non-zero.

For example, 1/2 = 1:2

A rational number that can be expressed in the form of a/b can be a recurring decimal also.

For example, 1/3 = 0.33333 which is repeating continuously which is a recurring decimal.

Therefore, a rational number can be written as the ratio of one integer to another and can be represented by a repeating or recurring decimal.
