(i) Assume that is Rational.

Hence,

is rational as a and b are integers.

Hence is rational which contradicts the fact that is irrational.

Therefore, our assumption was incorrect and is irrational.

(ii) Assume that 7 is rational.

where a and b are some integers.

therefore,

a and 7b are ratonal and so is

But this contradicts the fact that is irrational.

Hence our assumption was incorrect and is rational.

(iii) Assume as rational

Since a and b are integers, is also rational and should be rational as well.

This contradicts the fact that is irrational and hence our assumption was incorrect.

is irrational.

1) 1⁄√2 Rationalise this number 1 *√2⁄√2 *√2 = √2/2 √2 is irrational number and 2 is rational number division of rational number by irrational number is irrational . Hence 1/√2 is an irrational number. 2)7√5 7 is rational number √5... read more

1) 1⁄√2

Rationalise this number 1 *√2⁄√2 *√2

= √2/2

√2 is irrational number and 2 is rational number division of rational number by irrational number is irrational . Hence 1/√2 is an irrational number.

2)7√5

7 is rational number √5 is an irrational number product of rarional and irrational number is irrational number.

3)6+√5

6 is a rational number √5 is irrational number sum of rational and irrational number is an irrational number.

(i)Let is a rational number=. Squaring both sides ½=, So b^2=2a^2.So b^2 is divisible by 2 and b is divisible by 2. Let b=2c where c is an integer. Then b^2=4c^2, Hence 2a^2=4c^2. and a^2=2c^2.so a^2 is divisible by 2 and a is divisible by 2.This shows a and b have a common factor 2. But for a... read more

(i)Let is a rational number=. Squaring both sides ½=, So b^2=2a^2.So b^2 is divisible by 2 and b is divisible by 2. Let b=2c where c is an integer. Then b^2=4c^2, Hence 2a^2=4c^2. and a^2=2c^2.so a^2 is divisible by 2 and a is divisible by 2.This shows a and b have a common factor 2. But for a rational number a/b there cannot be a common factor other than 1.So this contradicts 1/√2 is rational. So it is an irrational number.

(ii) Let 7√5 is a rational number=a/b.

then√5=a/7b is a rational number. But we know√5 is irrational. So 7√5 is irrational.

(iii)Let 6+√2 is a rational number=a/b

then√2=(a/b)-6=(a-6b)/6 is a rational number.

This contradicts √2 is irrational.

So 6+√2 is irrational.
