Why are irrational?
A rational algebraic expression is an expressions which is of the formOriginally Posted by DenMac21

where and are polynomials in x. Note this does not require
that the coefficients in either polynomial be rational.
With this definition is a rational algebraic expression
(even though is not a rational number).
Clearly with this definition is not a rational algebraic expression.
Assuming the remaining expression should be: and that and
are polynomials then this is not a rational algebraic expression.
