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.
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.
