Integers are, for example, {...−3,−2,−1,0,1,2,3,4,...}
Rational number is any number that is or can be made into a fraction.
Irrational number can't be made into a fraction, for example: $\pi$, $\sqrt{2}$
Real number is any number that is rational or irrational - any number on the number line.
This means that −12 is an integer, but it is also a rational number because it can be made into a fraction, and it is real as it can be found on the number line.
