# Which number produces a rational number when added to 0.5?

Students were inquired to answer a question at school and to state what is most important for them to succeed. A lot of answers, one that that stood out was practice. Successful people surely are not born successful; they become successful thru hard work and perseverance. If you wish to reach your goals, keep this in mind! in the following paragraphs some question and answer examples that you possibly will utilise to develop your knowledge and gain insight that will assist you to continue your school studies.

## Question:

Which number produces a rational number when added to 0.5?

A. –1.73205081…
B. 1/4
C. 0.54732871…
D. √3

Option B is correct 1/4.

Step-by-step explanation:

To find : Which number produces a rational number when added to 0.5?

Solution :

A rational number is defined as number written in simple fraction or in p/q form.

An irrational number is defined as number which cannot be written in p/q form.

We know that,

A rational number adding a rational number gives you a rational number.

A rational number adding an irrational number gives you a irrational number.

Now we take each option and check.

Option A : -1.73205081…

Number has no end and have infinite number of digits so it is irrational number.

No, this number not produce a rational number.

Option B : 1/4=0.25

Number is in form p/q so it is rational number.

Yes, this number produce a rational number.

0.25+0.5=0.75 a rational number.

Option C : 0.54732871…

Option D :  cannot be written in ratio so it is irrational number.

From the answer and question examples above, hopefully, they can possibly guide the student take care of the question they had been looking for and take notice of all things declared in the answer above. You could simply then have a discussion with your classmate and continue the school learning by studying the subject to one another.
