I was thinking on the square root of 2 being irrational proof... and I got the idea that you could use the same idea for every root higher than two. The cube root, the quartic root, the quintic root, etcetera. (Obviously assuming the roots are natural numbers.)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

As a reassurance I'm not crazy, is this correct?
