1. Evaluate/simplify these expressions and place the letter corresponding to each one on the number line
below. (Place a dot on the number line and the letter above it, as shown in the example.) If the number does
not simplify to some defined value, i.e., it is undefined, then just state that and you will not be able to
plot that on the number line. Also fill in the table telling the smallest set the number belongs to. Choose
from these number sets: R real numbers, Q = rational numbers, I = irrational numbers, Z = integers,
W = whole numbers.
