Rational numbers: Numbers that can be represented in the form $\frac{p}{q}$ where p and q are integers and $q\ne 0.$
Irrational Numbers: Numbers that cannot be written in fractions and are non terminating and non repeating. For example pi=3.14159262...
Now we shall find a Rational and a Irrational number between the given pair. There shall be infinite rational and Irrational numbers between the given pair.
Now, $3\frac{1}{7}=3.14285714\dots$
$3\frac{1}{6}=3.16666666\dots$
a) Rational number is 3.16 (Take any number between the given pair that can be represented as a fraction)
b) Irrational number is 3.16548658245..(Take any non repeating and non terminating number between the given pair)
