How to prove that √2 and√3 are irrational numbers. please give the answer fast. I need it

CHRISLE, when will u finish writing ur answer


The Brainliest Answer!
The answer is : 
1. for √2
let us assume√2 as a rational no
so √2=p/q
squaring on both sides 
so 2 divides p²
⇒ 2 divides p
let p= 2m
squaring on both sides
so 2 divides q² ⇒ 2 divides q 
this contradicts the fact that p & q are co primes and have only one common factor so our assumption is wrong therefore √2 is irrational 

for √3 
the same method but take p=3m and then you can prove it
