i wanted to ask that rational numbers are in the form of p/q where q is not equal to zero. but we can write (root 2)/1. in this root 2 is p and 1 is q. q is not equal to zero. so<, it should be a rational number but always read in maths textbooks and vedio lessons of topperlearning that root 2 is irrational. why?

rational numbers are in the form of p/q where q is not equal to zero and p, q are integers.
(You have missed the complete definition student. I have bolded the missing part.
Since root 2 is not an integer, so it cannot be of that form. Hence, it is not a rational number.
So, remember, p and q have to be integers.

- (√2) ^2
- whether 2under root 45/ 2 underoot 5 + 3 underroot 20 / 2 underoot 5 on simplification gives a rational or an irrational number
- write whether 2 under root 45 / 2 under root 5 + 3under root 20 / 2 under root 5 on simplification gives a rational or an irrational number
