&gt; &gt;Given the above, what's the difference between irrational and
&gt; &gt;transcendal numbers? I read, only a few days ago, e is transcendal, pi
&gt; &gt;is transcendal, but it's unknown if pi + e is. Are these two concepts
&gt; &gt;related?
&gt;
&gt; The word is "transcendental", not "transcendal". A number x is
&gt; transcendental if there is no polynomial of degree at least 1
&gt; with rational coefficients that has x as a root. All transcendental
&gt; numbers are irrational, but not all irrational numbers are
&gt; transcendental.
&gt;

Also, 100% of real numbers are transcendental.
