A rational number is a number that can be written as a ratio. That means it can be written as a fraction, in which both the numerator (the number on top) and the denominator (the number on the bottom) are whole numbers.

1. I would like to discuss about rational number and here it is "A rational number is any number that can be represented on a number line. for example 2 is a rational number. the square roots of most numbers are not. if you have a number line and you can put the number on it, somewhere, it is a rational number".
