To answer that question, it is better to know what are considered NON-REAL. Complex numbers(square root of a negative number), numbers resulting from division by zero are examples of NON-REAL numbers. Anything else that is well defined in Mathematics (irrational,pi, e, fractions, integers) are considered REAL.
