In this lesson, you'll learn all about the real number system and its different classifications. Starting with natural numbers, whole numbers, and integers, you'll follow along with Mr. Perez as he marks a real number line with these numbers. Then, he'll explain rational numbers, which include fractions with decimal representations that either terminate or repeat in a pattern. Finally, he'll touch on irrational numbers, which have decimal representations that go on forever with no pattern. With examples of both rational and irrational numbers, you'll leave this lesson with a better understanding of the real number system as a whole.
