There is a special type of irrational number called a 'Transcendental number' which can't be expressed as a fraction. Examples of Transcendental numbers are Pi and Euler's number. Trigonometry and calculus use irrational numbers to calculate the values of lengths and angles in a triangle. The number φ (phi) is an irrational number that is often found in nature, called the golden ratio. It is the ratio of the length of a line segment divided by the length of the shorter segment and is equal to 1.618. Ex. Pineapples
