&gt; &gt; &gt;Given the above, what's the difference between irrational and
&gt; &gt; &gt;transcendal numbers? I read, only a few days ago, e is transcendal, pi
&gt; &gt; &gt;is transcendal, but it's unknown if pi + e is. Are these two concepts
&gt; &gt; &gt;related?
&gt; &gt;
&gt; &gt; The word is "transcendental", not "transcendal". A number x is
&gt; &gt; transcendental if there is no polynomial of degree at least 1
&gt; &gt; with rational coefficients that has x as a root. All transcendental
&gt; &gt; numbers are irrational, but not all irrational numbers are
&gt; &gt; transcendental.
&gt; &gt;
&gt;
&gt; Also, 100% of real numbers are transcendental.


Almost all != all.

... one Marine noticed one of the prisoners was still breathing. A Marine
can be heard saying on the pool footage provided to Reuters Television:
"He's fucking faking he's dead. He faking he's fucking dead."
"The Marine then raises his rifle and fires into the man's head.
The pictures are too graphic for us to broadcast," Sites said.
