Help your students prepare for their Maths GCSE with this free rational and irrational numbers worksheet of 44 questions and answers
Within the real number system, a rational number is any number that can be expressed in the form “p over 1” where p and q are integers. Whole numbers, terminating decimals and recurring decimals (repeating decimals) are all rational numbers.
Irrational numbers are numbers which cannot be written in the form “p over q”. When written as decimals, irrational numbers go on forever without repeating. Examples of irrational numbers include the square root of any number that is not a perfect square and pi.
Looking forward, students can then progress to additional number worksheets, for example a fractions worksheet or a rounding worksheet.
