**Answer:**

Let us assume that √5 is rational

Then √5 =

(a and b are co primes, with only 1 common factor and b≠0)

⇒ √5 =

(cross multiply)

⇒ a = √5b

⇒ a² = 5b² -------> α

⇒ 5/a²

(by theorem if p divides q then p can also divide q²)

⇒ 5/a ----> 1

⇒ a = 5c

(squaring on both sides)

⇒ a² = 25c² ----> β

From equations α and β

⇒ 5b² = 25c²

⇒ b² = 5c²

⇒ 5/b²

(again by theorem)

⇒ 5/b---> 2

we know that a and b are co-primes having only 1 common factor but from 1 and 2 we can that it is wrong.

This contradiction arises because we assumed that √5 is a rational number

∴ our assumption is wrong

∴ √5 is irrational number.
