Hi, I need help because I'm really stuck on this math word. Can someone please define what rational coordinates means what? I really need help fast because this project is due today!
Thank You :)

1. In number theory, a rational point is a point in space each of whose coordinates are rational; that is, the coordinates of the point are elements of the field of rational numbers, as well as being elements of larger fields that contain the rational numbers, such as the real numbers and the complex numbers.

2. A rational number is a number which can be expressed exactly as a fraction or a ratio.
so your coordinates would NOT contain any square roots.
