Using the numbers 5, 8, and 24, create a problem using no more than four operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, square, square root, cube, cube root) where the solution will be an irrational number. Explain why the result of your operations is an irrational number.

Man, if you toss in a √ or ∛, almost any combination of the numbers will be irrational.

√(5*8*24)

∛(5+8+24)

∛5/8+√24

and so on

Thank you!!
