### Is an irrational number a real number?

An irrational number is any real number that cannot be expressed
as a ratio of two integers.
So yes, an irrational number IS a real number.
There is also a set of numbers called transcendental numbers,
which includes both real and complex/imaginary numbers. Of this
set, all the real numbers are irrational numbers.

### Can a number be a natural number and a real number?

All natural numbers are also real numbers, but all real numbers
are not necessarily natural numbers because natural numbers are
positive whole numbers. Real numbers are any number on the number
line, which includes irrational numbers like pi and sqrt2. Thus
only the positive natural numbers are both natural and real. Hope
this is not too long-winded!

### What are irrational and rational numbers?

A rational number can be expressed as a fraction a/b, where a
and b are integers. This includes the integers themselves, that can
be expressed as (number) / 1.
An irrational number is one that can't be exactly expressed in
this way. This includes the square roots of any integer that is not
a perfect square; pi; and e - and a host of other numbers. There
are more rational than irrational numbers (rational numbers are a
countable infinity", and irrational numbers an "uncountable
infinity"), but we usually deal mainly with rational numbers - or
use rational approximations for the numbers we deal with.

###### Asked in Prime Numbers

### Is the product of 2 prime numbers a prime number?

No.
If two prime numbers are multiplied, then the result is a
composite number.
Reason 1:
If you multiplied two numbers, that number's factors includes
the numbers you multiplied by.
Reason 2:
A prime number cannot be divided into two numbers beside 1 and
itself.
1 is not a prime number or a composite number by definition. If
1 was a prime number, then the product of 1*1 is 1, and 1 is a
prime number, but 1 isn't a prime number.
