What is a Rational Number that is Not an Integer?


Question: What is a rational number that is not an integer?

A rational number can be defined as any number that can be expressed or written in the p/q form, where 'p' and 'q' are integers and q is a non-zero number

Answer: A rational number that is not an integer can be expressed in decimal form

Integers are set of numbers which are expressed as: .......-3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3.....

Explanation:

Integers can be expressed as rational numbers such as: -3/1, -6/2

But rational numbers like -5/3, 8/11, 2/5 etc are not integers as they don't simplify to give us a whole number (including negatives)

Therefore, all integers are rational numbers but all rational numbers are not integers.

Thus, all integers are rational numbers but all rational numbers are not integers. Therefore, a rational number that is not an integer can be expressed in decimal form.
