Rational Numbers – Addition In this tutorial, we will learn the operation of addition of rational numbers. In the process of addition of rational numbers there are two types of categories. (1) Addition of Rational Numbers with Same Denominator (2) Addition of Rational Numbers with Different Denominator (1) Addition of Rational Numbers with Same Denominator […]

Arithmetical Operations – Rational Numbers Rational numbers are numbers which can be represented in the form of p/q, where p and q are any two integers and q is not equal to zero(q ≠ 0). A rational number p/q is said to be in its standard form if p and q do not have any […]

Property of Rational Numbers – Additive Identity and Additive Inverse There are two basic additive properties of rational numbers. (1) Additive Identity Property (2) Additive Inverse Property (1) Additive Identity Property: Additive identity of rational numbers states that the sum of any rational number (a/b) and zero is the rational number itself. Suppose a/b is […]

Distributive Property of Rational Numbers Distributive Property of Multiplication over Addition Distributive property for multiplication over addition of rational numbers states that any expression of three rational numbers a, b, c in form of a (b + c), then it can be solved as, a x (b + c) = a x b + a […]

Associative Property of Rational Numbers Associative Property Associative property of rational numbers states that when three or more rational numbers are added or multiplied the result remains same irrespective of how they are grouped. However, in the case of subtraction and division if the order of the numbers is changed then result will also change. […]

Commutative Property of Rational Numbers Commutative Property The commutative property of rational numbers states that when any two rational numbers are added or multiplied in any order the result we get same result. In case of subtraction and division, if order of numbers is change the result will also change. We will understand these properties […]

Closure Property of Rational Numbers What are Rational Numbers? Rational numbers are numbers which can be represented in the form of p/q, where p and q are any two integers and q is not equal to zero(q ≠ 0). Closure Property of Rational Numbers When we perform any operation on a rational number, such that […]
