**Vocabulary**

absolute value, rational numbers

**TEKS** 7(1)(D), 7(2)

**Intro**

A **rational number** is a number that can be written in the form
*a* and *b* are integers and *b ne*; 0.

You can also think of rational numbers as the whole numbers, fractions, and decimals you already know, and their opposites.

Here are some examples of rational numbers.

**Example Classifying Numbers**

Decide if each number is a *rational number*, a *whole number*, or an *integer*.

**Solution**

Whole numbers are zero and the counting numbers.

0, 13

Integers include whole numbers and their opposites.

0, − 7, − 125, 13

Rational numbers can be written in the form
