written as a ratio (fraction) of two integers.
Example: 5/8 is rational
.89 is rational because it is 89/100

Use a calculator to find the equivalent decimal form of each
fraction. Remember that repeating numbers like .333333 can be
written as .3. Then find the equivalent fraction for the last two.
What do you notice about the digits after the decimal point in the decimal forms of
fractions? Compare notes with your neighbor and refine your conjecture if necessary.

1) consider the decimal 0.202002000200002000002... Do you think this
decimal represents a rational number?
2) Do you think a negative sign affects whether or not a number is a
rational number? Use - as -4/5 as an example.
3) Do you think a mixed number is a rational number? Explain.
