### How do I tell wether a number is rational or irrational?

If a number can be expressed as a ratio of two whole numbers then it's rational.

### What can constitutes a rational expression

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

### How do I simplify radical expressions with fractions on a TI-nspire cx cas

If the results' display mode is set to exact, the calculator will give you exact results.This means that if the result has radicals you will obtain a rationalized expression: any radicals left will be in the numerator. This is the default behavior of the calculator when display mode is st to EXACT. There are no more simplifications to perform.
However (because I am not certain what you mean by simplification) I will add that if any number in your calculation has a decimal mark, the result will be given in its decimal representation. (Is this what you mean by simplification.
Further, if you do not care for exact result switch the display mode to APPROXIMATE.
I am enclosing a screen capture to show you what happens.

### `What constitutes a rational expression? How would you explain this concept to someone unfamiliar with it?

A rational expression is a ratio of two polynomial expressions.
Example R(x)=P(x)/Q(x) where P(x) and Q(x) are polynomials of the indeterminate x.

If your calculator is SetUp for Math Input/Output (MATHIO), a result that gives a radical will remain in radical form. If a radical appears in a denominator the whole expression is rationalized: Any radical left is put in the numerator. 1/Sqr(3) is displayed as Sqr(3)/3.

### Can this calculator find the sum of two rational expressions??

All calculators can calculate the sum of two numerical expressions (no letter symbols).
To be able to declare that this calculator can add two rational expressions ( with letter symbols or not) and displays them as a rational expression (result) I would need to know the EXACT Model.

### Variables

Hello,
This calculator cannot handle symbolic algebra.
Use the rules to simplify the expressions: Get rid of the parentheses using distributivity od multiplication with respect to addition; group similar terms (terms with x, terms without x).
Hope it helps.
