# A rational number is a number that can be written as a ratio of two integers. Is this statement true?

A rational number is a number that can be written in the form a/b, where a is an integer and b is a non-zero integer.

## Answer: Yes. A rational number is a number that can be written as a ratio of two integers.

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

**Explanation:**

Numbers that can be expressed as a/b fraction form is a rational number where a is an integer and b is a non-zero integer. The rational number a/b can also be written as a ratio a:b. Since a and b are integers with b not equal to 0, the given statement is true.

Let's consider an example, 1/5 which is in the form of a/b, or 1:5 ratio which is rational, where 1 and 5 are integers. So this can be written as the ratio of two integers.

### Therefore, a rational number is a number that can be written as a ratio of two integers.
