The set of whole numbers is infinite; hence, the number of rectangles that meet your specifications is infinite, as well. Are you sure you have the question right?

### How does the pythagorean theorem prove irrational numbers?

It does not.
If you consider a right angled triangle with minor sides of
length 1 unit each, then the Pythagorean theorem shows the third
side (the hypotenuse) is sqrt(2) units in length. So the theorem
proves that a side of such a length does exist. However, it does
not prove that the answer is irrational. The same applies for some
other irrational numbers.

### Does 9 exist?

That's a question about 'does numbers exist'?
It has been answered in many ways by many mathematical
philosophers through history.
Platonics say that numbers exist in a divine world, in which we
may get some degreed of insight.
Others say that numbers only exist to humans as a tool.
Others that numbers doesn't exist of all - only the things that
numbers represent. Consider the statement "there are nine stones" -
there are some stones, but where is nine?
.
So: yes and no - and perhaps.
It depends!
