Definitions for **"Rational number"**

a number that can be expressed as a ratio of two integers a/b with b not equal to zero; for example 3/4, 7, .5, .75, .333..., 7.5 Pi; the square root of 2, the square root of 3, .01001000100001..., etc. are not rational numbers

(4) Any number that can be represented in form , where a and b are integers and b is not 0.

A real number that can be expressed as a fraction.

a number which is either zero or the ratio of two non-zero whole numbers see also: hyper-rational

A real number that can be expressed in the form of a fraction( ), with the numerator and denominator being whole numbers.

Any number that can be expressed as a ratio in the form of a/b where a and b are integers and b does not equal zero

A rational number is a number that is the ratio of two integers. All other real numbers are said to be irrational.

an integer or a fraction

a data structure that consists of two integers

a fraction a/b, where a and b are integers

a number expressible as the quotient of two integers, a numerator and a denominator

a number than can be expressed as a fraction

a number that can be expressed in the form of p/q where p and q are integers

a number that can be represented as a fraction-one integer (whole number) divided by another

a number that can be represented as teh quotient of two integers

a number that can be written as a ratio

a number which can be written as a fraction where numerator and denominator are integers (where the top and bottom of the fraction are whole numbers)

a positive or negative fraction, or zero

A real number that can be written as a quotient of two integers a/b, where b does not equal 0; a repeating or terminating decimal, integer, fraction, or whole number.

a real number that can be expressed in the form (a / b) where b is not equal to zero

a number that can be written as an integer divided by a non-zero integer

see fraction any number that can be written in the form a/b where a and b are integers and b cannot equal 0. It is a negative rational number if it is less than zero i.e. either a or b, but not both, is negative.

Any number that can be written as a fraction. a terminating or repeating decimal

A rational number is a number that can be expressed as the ratio of two integers without the decimal representation of the number going on forever with a repeating pattern. If the decimal representation continues forever with a repeating pattern, a number is an irrational number.

Any number that can be represented in the form a/b, where and are integers and is not 0. Also, any number that can be represented by a terminating decimal or repeating decimal. 2/3, -2/3, 0.5, -0.5, and 0.333 … are rational numbers.

A number that can be expressed as a ratio of two non-zero integers.

an extension of the integer number system allowing division of integers.

A rational number is a number that can be expressed in the form a/b, where a and b are integers and bâ‰ 0. For example, 0, 1/2, and -41 are rational numbers. Each rational number corresponds to a unique point on the number line (but most points on the number line do not correspond to a rational number -- they correspond to an irrational number).

A number that can be expressed as the ratio, or quotient, of two integers, a/b, provided b Í°0. Rational numbers can be expressed as common fractions or decimals, such as 3/5 or 0.6. Finite decimals, repeating decimals, mixed numbers and whole numbers are all rational numbers. Nonrepeating decimals cannot be expressed in this way, and are said to be irrational.

A number that is capable of being represented as a fraction,via a numerator and denominator.

Expressible as a ratio of whole numbers, that is, not involving roots or non-terminating decimals; involving only addition, subtraction, multiplication and division and only a finite number of times.

In mathematics, a rational number is a number which can be expressed as a ratio of two integers. Non-integer rational numbers (commonly called fractions) are usually written as the vulgar fraction \tfrac ab, where b is not zero.
