Combining Rational Numbers with Irrational Numbers Is 12 ϩ 22 rational or irrational? 3 The Real Number Line and Order LEARNING OBJECTIVES After completing this section, you will be able to: ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ Graph numbers on the real line Use the order symbols Ͻ, Յ, Ͼ, Ն Work with set and interval notation Find and use absolute values of real numbers Find distances on the real line ■ The Real Line The real numbers can be represented by points on a line, as shown in Figure 1. The positive direction (toward the right) is indicated by an arrow.

The notation 1a, q2 stands for the set of all numbers that are greater than a, so the symbol q simply indicates that the interval extends indefinitely far in the positive direction. The following table lists the nine possible types of intervals. When these intervals are discussed, we will always assume that a Ͻ b.
