All you have to do I think is just find all the numbers that classify 17.2353617 and check it off.

Google the definitions.

You need to use your intuition here. You can't tick both "rational" and "irrational," as no number satisfies that property. Can this number be expressed as a fraction of integers? Can you have 17.2353617 people living in your street?
