Those numbers which can be written in the form are called Rational Numbers.

Since is of the form  , that's why it is a rational number. Also the decimal 

representation of is non-terminating but repeating (because after decimal the number 

142857 will repeat every time). So, is a rational number.


But is not rational because because is not exactly equal to . So, is irrational.

It is rational number . But pie is irrational number. Actually pie is not equal to 22/7. But it is approximately equal to the 22/7.
