# What is the difference between an irrational number and an integer?

**Solution:**

Irrational numbers are all the real numbers that are not rational numbers. That is, irrational numbers cannot be expressed as the ratio of two integers.

Irrational numbers are non-terminating, recurring decimal numbers i.e, a decimal expansion that neither terminates nor becomes periodic which cannot be expressed in the form of a fraction.

Example: π is an irrational number whose value is nearly 3.1415926...

Integer is a complete entity that includes every natural number along with its negatives and zero. They can be expressed as a fraction with a denominator equal to 1.

Example: 3/1 , -8, 0

Integers are rational numbers whereas irrational numbers cannot be rational numbers.

Thus, we have seen the differences between irrational numbers and integers
