# 2 rational numbers between √2 and √3

Solution

## For rational number: √2= 1.414 (up to 3 places after decimal place) √3= 1.732 ( “ “ “ “ ) So, there may be so many rational numbers we can get . Consider for first place of decimal place and if we place the numbers in the number line we see 1.5 is one rational number [3/2] lies in between 1.4 and 1.7. As, √2<1.5<√3 And other number is 1.7 means 17/10 which is also a rational number between 1.414(up to 3 places after decimal) and 1.732(up to 3 places after decimal) For irrational number. We know , both √2 & √3 are irrational number. So √2+√3 ¡s also irrational. Therefore(√2+√3)/2 is also irrational number. As , √2<(√2+√3)/2 <√3, (√2+√3)/2 is one irrational number between √2 &√3.
