Question 1.
Define an irrational number.
Solution:
A number which cannot be expressed in the form of pq where p and q are integers and q ≠ 0 is called an irrational number.

Question 2.
Explain, how irrational numbers differ from rational numbers?
Solution:
A rational number can be expressed in either terminating decimal or non-terminating recurring decimals but an irrational number is expressed in non-terminating non-recurring decimals.

Solution:
Between two numbers 0.3030030003… and 0.3010010001…, a rational will be 0.301 and irrational number will be 0.3020020002…

Question 10.
Find three different irrational numbers between the rational numbers 57 and 911. [NCERT]
Solution: Question 11.
Give an example of each, of two irrational numbers whose:
(i) difference is a rational number.
(ii) difference is an irrational number.
(iii) sum is a rational number.
(iv) sum is an irrational number.
(v) product is a rational number.
(vi) product is an irrational number.
(vii) quotient is a rational number.
(viii) quotient is an irrational number.
Solution:
(i) Two numbers whose difference is also a rational number, e.g. 2–√
, 2–√  which are irrational numbers.
∴ Difference = 2–√ – 2–√ = 0 which is also a rational number.
(ii) Two numbers whose difference is an irrational number.
e.g. 3–√  and 2–√  which are irrational numbers.
Now difference = 3–√  –2–√  which is also an irrational number.
(iii) Let two irrational numbers be 3–√  and –2–√  which are irrational numbers.
Now sum = 3–√  + (-3–√) = 3–√
– 3–√  = 0 Which is a rational number.
(iv) Let two numbers be 5–√  , 3–√ which are irrational numbers.
Now sum = 5–√ + 3–√  which is an irrational number.
(v) Let numbers be 3–√  +2–√and  3–√  –2–√which are irrational numbers.
Now product = (3–√  +2–√ ) (3–√ –2–√)
= 3-2 = 1 which is a rational number.
(vi) Let numbers be 3–√ and 5–√ , which are irrational number.
Now product = 3–√ x 5–√  = 3×5−−−−√
= 15−−√
which is an irrational number.
(vii) Let numbers be 6 2–√  and 2 2–√ which are irrational numbers.
Quotient =62√22√ = 3 which is a rational number.
(viii) Let numbers be 3–√and 5–√ which are irrational numbers.
Now quotient =3√5√ = 35−−√ which is an  irrational number.

Question 12.
Find two irrational numbers between 0.5 and 0.55.
Solution:
Two irrational numbers between 0.5 and 0.55 will be 0.51010010001… and 52020020002…

Question 13.
Find two irrational numbers lying betwee 0.1 and 0.12.
Solution:
Two irrational numbers lying between 0.1 and 0.12 will be 0.1010010001… and 0.1020020002…

Question 14.
Prove that 3–√+5–√ is an irrational number.
