# Classify Irrational Numbers

## Worksheet Description

This worksheet presents a series of mathematical expressions combining integers with square roots, and students are instructed to determine whether the result of each expression is a rational or an irrational number. It includes a reminder of the rules pertaining to the sum, difference, product, and quotient of rational and irrational numbers. The problems are a mix of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division involving square roots, which are often a source of irrational numbers. By completing this worksheet, students will practice applying these rules to concrete examples.

The worksheet is aimed at teaching students how to identify rational and irrational numbers, especially when they arise from operations involving square roots. It underscores the fact that the combination of rational and irrational numbers through basic arithmetic operations results in an irrational number. This exercise helps to deepen students’ understanding of the properties of square roots and how they affect the rationality of a number. Additionally, it provides a practical application of the theoretical knowledge about the number system, enhancing their problem-solving skills in mathematics.
