Tell whether each number is a real number, rational number, irrational, interger, or whole number, and then order then from least to greatest.
( Square root sign) 49, 8, ( square root sign) 4, and 3.

Dawn,
I don't understand how to do it, that's the thing I know that 8 is a whole number, and that the square root of four is 2, and that's a whole number, and the aquare root of 49 is 7, that's a whole number too, and 3 is an interger.

bobpursley,
What you don't know is what a rational/irrational number is.
Review those definitions, and you have it, then order them

Dawn,
All the whole numbers are rational because they can be written as a fraction, and irrational are the ones that can't be written as fractions. I understand that part.

Ok,then say so as the problem dictates, you have done everything except order them least to greatest
