Is -49 rational or irrational

  1. 0
  2. 4
asked by Lola
  1. A number is rational when it can be expressed as a fraction of integers.
    For example, 24 is rational because
    24=24/1=48/2...
    -3 is rational
    because
    -3 = -6/2 = -3/1 ....
    So see if you can figure out if -49 is rational.
