  by euclid division lemma,we know that If a and b are two positive integers, then,by euclid division lemma  a = bq + r, 0  r  b Let b = 3 Therefore, r = 0, 1, 2 Therefore, a = 3q or a = 3q + 1 or a = 3q + 2 If a = 3q:  If a = 3q + 1 : If a = 3q + 2 : Therefore, the square of any positive integer is either of the form 3m or 3m + 1.

Let a be any positive integer a=6q+r where 0 < or = r < 6 put r=1: a=6q+1 which is an odd integer r=3: a=6q+3 which is an odd integer r=5: a=6q+5 which is an odd integer therefore, any positive odd integer is of form 6q+1,6q+3 or 6q+5, where q is some integer.  
Since the decimal part of the given number is non-terminating and non-repeating we can conclude that the given number is irrational and cannot be written in the form  where p and q are integers.
decimal expansions of  rational numbers are (i)  (ii)  (iv)  (vI)  (viii)  (ix) 
Let us assume  is rational. This means  can be written in the form  where p and q are co-prime integers. As p and q are integers  would be rational, this contradicts the fact that  is irrational. This contradiction arises because our initial assumption that  is rational was wrong. Therefore  is irrational.
