Rational number is of the form of a/b
Where b should not be equal to zero
Because if b is 0 then it will tend to infinity
Hence it will be a indeterminate form

if we divide 10 by 5 then we answer get 2 because 2 times 5 is 10 while if we divide 10 by 0 then we answer get undefined because in the 0 tables we cannot get 10. So the rational number in the form of p by q where q is not equal to 0. Thank you

Let us take a rational a/b.
For example, take the rational number 5/10 = ½
Now, take the example of a rational number 1/0.
Didn’t we learn anything divided by 0 is not defined.
Hence 1/0 won’t be defined.
Therefore, a rational number is defined as a nuber which can be written in the form of a/b where b is not equal to 0.
Hope this answer helps.

Because if equal 0 then the form of a/b equal infinite.

A rational number should be in the form of a/b, and if b=0, then no matter whatever the value of a is the whole numebr is going to be infintiy, and as you might know that infinity is not a number it is just a imagination.
