rational numbers: $-3, 0, \dfrac{6}{5}$ integers: $-3, 0$
RECALL: (1) The set of integers are the numbers $0, 1, 2, 3, ...$ and $-1, -2, -3, ...$. (2) Rational numbers are numbers that can be expressed as the ratio $\dfrac{a}{b}$ where $a$ and $b$ are integers and $b\ne0$. Note that: (i) $-3 = \frac{-6}{2}$ (ii) $0 = \frac{0}{5}$ (iii) $\sqrt{2}$ and $\pi$ are irrational numbers Thus, the rational numbers among the elements of the given set are: $-3, 0, \text{ and } \frac{6}{5}$ The integers among the elements of the given set are: $-3$ and $0$
