## Homework Statement

Show that the square root of 3 is not rational

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

A number is irrational if χ is not ε. Q=p/q: p, q ε z and q is not=0, z=integers

If p/q: p, q is not ε or q=0, then square 3 is rational. If p=square root of 3 and q is not ε, then the square root of 3 cannot be rational.

Could someone please tell me if this is correct and if not show me what I need to do?

Thank you very much
