Can someone please tell me what the word "WHOLE" AND "IRRATIONAL" MEAN IN CALCULUS? THANKS

David Q,
I'd have thought  unless someone corrects me  that they both have the same meaning as they do in basic arithmetic. By a whole number you mean an integer, and by an irrational number you mean a number that can't be represented as the ratio of two integers. 5 and 5 are whole numbers; 4.5 isn't. 14/32 is a rational number; the square root of two and pi are not.
