Rational Number: A number is said to be a rational number if we can write it as a fraction where the numerator of the fraction and denominator of the fraction both are whole numbers, denominator cannot equal to zero and also rational number has finite or recurring decimals.
Example are given below:
19, 4=41, 9= ± 3
All numbers above are rational numbers.
Irrational Number: An irrational number is a number which is not a rational number. It is a number that cannot be written as a ratio of two integers or can’t be expressed as fraction form and irrational number has infinite or non-recurring decimals.
Examples are below:
2, 3, 52, π, e.

According to a study by Dr. John McDougall of his live-in weight loss program at St. Helena Hospital, the people who follow his program lose between 6 and 15 pounds a month until they approach trim body weight. Let's suppose that the weight loss is uniformly distributed. We are interested in the weight loss of a randomly selected individual following the program for one month. Give the distribution of X. Enter an exact number as an integer, fraction, or decimal.f(x)= where X.μ=σ=. Find the probability that the individual lost more than 8 pounds in a month.Suppose it is known that the individual lost more than 9 pounds in a month. Find the probability that he lost less than 13 pounds in the month.
