# Worksheet on Irrational Numbers

From previous topics of irrational numbers it has become clear that rationalization of denominator is one of the most important steps done while doing calculations which involve irrational denominators. In the previous topic of rationalization we have learnt how to rationalize the denominator. In this topic, we will get to solve some problems regarding rationalization of denominators.
