# Irrational Operations

## Worksheet Description

This worksheet is about differentiating between rational and irrational numbers, two fundamental categories of numbers in mathematics. The worksheet presents a series of mathematical expressions that students are required to solve and then classify as either rational or irrational. It includes operations with square roots, which often result in irrational numbers, and basic arithmetic operations, some of which will result in rational numbers. Each problem is designed to be evaluated and placed into one of these two categories.

The worksheet aims to teach students how to perform basic arithmetic operations involving square roots and to understand the concept of rational and irrational numbers. By solving these expressions, students practice identifying whether the result is a terminating or repeating decimal (rational) or a non-terminating, non-repeating decimal (irrational). This exercise helps in reinforcing their understanding of the number system and enhances their problem-solving skills. It also encourages students to recognize patterns and properties of numbers that make them rational or irrational.
