Hi everyone,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Just started studying Real Analysis and I have some questions. If I ask anything stupid please excuse me.

1. How do you generate irrational numbers? In other way, are there irrational numbers beyond

pi, e and roots of numbers?

2. What is division? For 5/2, 8/3 or 18/7 I think of it as divisor, remainder problem. But think of dividing an irrational number by another rational number. What does it mean? I am really having a hard time understanding what division really is.

Thanks

Abiyo
