Haha it's not an expression which shows you are not crazy.

It is a fractional formula in which the top and bottom line are algebraic polynomials, whether low order (like x + 1) or higher order (like 4x^3 + 8x^2 - 7x + 5). See here

Hi,
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
New users get to try the service completely Free afterwhich it costs \$6 per call and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
Goodluck!

A rational number is that number which can take the form a/b where a and b are non zero integers.
The numerator can easily be divided by the denominator and you get an answer which is exhaustive.

For example 2/5 gives 0.4; 3/10 gives 0.333... this is also rational

### Which of the following are rational numbers? 2 7 1.6 8 5.111... 9.111...

All are rational numbers. Any integer is such, and the others as written can be expressed as finite fractions ie

168 / 100
5111 / 1000
9111 /1000

If your notation means that the repeating decimal goes on forever eg

5.111111111111111111111111111111111111111..................

Then it still can be rational, as 46 / 9 is, and 82 / 9

### What constitutes a rational expression?

The ratio of two polynomial expressions. But before getting this, you need to know what constitutes a polynomial (expression).
In a polynomial is some indeterminate x, you can only have positive integer powers of x, such as x^0=1, x, x^2, x^n (n restricted to be a positive integer).
