A number that cannot be expressed as a ratio of two integers is an irrational number. Hence, √14 is an irrational number.

## What kind of number is 14?

No. 14 is a composite number, because two numbers other than 1 and itself can be multiplied to make 14 (2 and 7).

**Is negative 14 a irrational number?**

Negative 14 is a rational number.

**Is 0.15 and irrational number?**

Option (d) = 0.15161516… Its decimal expansion is neither non-terminate nor repeating. So it is irrational number.

### Is 13 a whole number?

Whole numbers are the set of natural numbers including 0 (zero) and all positive numbers whereas, excluding integers, decimals, and fractions. Example – 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6….. etc. Therefore 13 is a whole number because 13 is a part of all the natural numbers in the number system.

### Is 13 a rational numbers?

13 is a rational number. A rational number is any number that is negative, positive or zero, and that can be written as a fraction.

**Is the square root of 14 a rational number?**

## What determines if a number is irrational?

In mathematics, an irrational number is any real number that cannot be expressed as a ratio a/b, where a and b are integers and b is non-zero. Informally, this means that an irrational number cannot be represented as a simple fraction. Irrational numbers are those real numbers that cannot be represented as terminating or repeating decimals.

## How do you prove that a number is irrational?

To prove a number is irrational, we prove the statement of assumption as contrary and thus the assumed number ‘ a ‘ becomes irrational. Let ‘p’ be any prime number and a is a positive integer such that p divides a^2. We know that, any positive integer can be written as the product of prime numbers.
