## Homework Statement

I can't figure this part out

## Homework Equations

In the previous part of this problem, I proved that there is a rational number between a and b.

## The Attempt at a Solution

Maybe 1 < √2 < 2 ---> a < √2 a < 2a ---> a < √2 a < 2b .... then somehow morph that into a < q < b, where q is an irrational number.

Ideas, please?!?!
