1. It usually helps answering questions like this - which are really all about definitions - by thinking up an example or two. Usually the answer isn't far behind:

1. Here's a fraction: 1/2. Can that be written as a decimal?

2. Is -5 a whole number? Is zero a whole number?

3. Is -5 an integer?

4. I name the number 3.14159... "pi". Does that classify it?

5. Are the following rational numbers? 1/2, 0.4, 0.3333333...., -10?

6. The square root of 2 is an irrational number. If it's a rational number, you can find two integers P and Q such that P/Q = the square root of 2. Can you?

7. Can you think of a real number that isn't either a rational or an irrational?

8. Here's a statement: "Grass is green". A counterexample is something that proves that the original statement cannot be true. I've just seen some green grass. Does that prove that grass is not green?

9. My wallet contains \$10, whereas my friend's wallet contains \$5. That describes an inequality - but it isn't a mathematical sentence (though it could be translated into one). Or do we mean the *mathematical definition* of an inequality?

10. Is +5 the opposite of -5? If I make \$5 profit, is that the opposite of saying that I make a loss of \$5? (I think there's an element of semantics here, to be honest.)

11. What is the absolute value of 10? Is it 9? Because that's the distance between 10 and 1 on a number line.

Does that help?
