I think you want a better answer than dan. Not that I am insulting I am saying it does not satisfy the mathematical mind.
To answer this we need to answer what is a real number?
The first person to define this was Cauchy. The idea is that a real number can be tought of a rational number as close to it. This concept is called Cauchy sequence. It is definied in terms of equivalance classes. Furthermore, one this is definied it is easy to well-define addition and multiplication.
