Natural numbers are all numbers 1, 2, 3, 4… They are the numbers you typically count and they will certainly continue on right into infinity.

You are watching: Rational number but not an integer

Whole numbers are all organic numbers consisting of 0 e.g. 0, 1, 2, 3, 4…

Integers include all totality numbers and their negative counterpart e.g. …-4, -3, -2, -1, 0,1, 2, 3, 4,…

All integers belengthy to the rational numbers. A rational number is a number

$$fracab,: b eq 0$$

Wbelow a and b are both integers.

Example

The number 4 is an integer and also a rational number. As it can be created without a decimal component it belongs to the integers. It is a rational number bereason it have the right to be created as:

$$frac41$$

Or

$$frac82$$

Or even

$$frac-8-2$$

Whereas

$$frac15=0.2$$

is a rational number yet not an integer.

A rational number composed in a decimal form can either be terminating as in:

$$frac15=0.2$$

Or repeating as in

$$frac56=0.83333...$$

All rational numbers belong to the genuine numbers.
