QUESTION

Is zero a rational number? Can you write it in the form of  $\dfrac{p}{q}$, where p and q are integers and q $\ne 0$? 

Write 1 if it’s True and 0 if it’s False.

ANSWER Verified Verified

Hint: We know that, rational number is a number which can be written in the form of $\dfrac{p}{q}$, where q is not equal to zero.


Complete answer:


As we came to know by the hint, a rational number is a number which can be written in the form of $\dfrac{p}{q}$, where q is not equal to zero.


So here, 

Zero is a rational number, as it can be written in the form of $\dfrac{p}{q}$.

Since, 0 (Zero) is an integer thus, zero can be written in the form of $\dfrac{p}{q}$ 


Example, $\dfrac{0}{1},\dfrac{0}{2},\dfrac{0}{3}$,etc. where 0 (Zero) is an integer


So, it is true. $\Rightarrow {\text{1}}$


NOTE: - In simple words, a rational number refers to a number that one can write as a fraction. Rational numbers happen to be real numbers. Moreover, these numbers can be positive or negative.
