X+y will be irrational as rational number+irrational number is always irrational no.

Ex- 2+5.55..=7.55..which is irrational.

xy will also be irrational rational no.* irrational no. is always irrational no.

Ex-3*4.55..=13.66..which is irrational too.

X-irrational..for ex we take : 2.13
y-rational..for ex we take :5.

so x+y::

5 + 2.13= 7.13

so we can say that x+y= irrational......
