Is Every Rational Number Is a natural Number Every natural number is a rational number but a rational number need not to be a natural number. We know that 1/1 = 1, 2 = 2/1, 3 = 3/1, 4 = 4/1 and so on….. In other words we can say that every natural number can […]

Equivalent Rational Numbers – Definition – Examples Rational Numbers A rational number can be represented in the form of p/q, where q is not equal to zero. Equivalent Rational Numbers Two rational numbers are said to be equivalent, if they have same value but can be represented in different forms. We know that if we […]

Division of Two Rational Numbers In this tutorial, we will learn, division of rational numbers. Rational numbers are written as fractions, therefore to divide a given rational number by another rational number, we have to multiply the given rational number by the reciprocal of the second rational number. Let a/b is a rational number then […]

Rational Numbers – Multiplication In this tutorial, we will learn, multiplication of rational numbers. Multiplication of two rational numbers is just like multiplication of two integers. Product of two or more rational numbers is founded by multiplying the corresponding numerators and denominators of the numbers and writing them in the standard form. Product of numerators […]

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 […]

Rational Numbers on Number Line 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). Rational Numbers on Number Line Rational numbers can easily represented on number line by following some simple steps. […]

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 […]
