Definitions:

Rational Number: A number which can be expressed in the form of p/q, where q ≠ 0.
Irrational Number: A number which can not be expressed in the form of p/q.

For finding a rational number between 2 and 3, take a number between 2 and 3 which has a fixed value (number which is terminating)
So, A rational number between 2 and 3 = 2.4

For irrational number we can write any decimal expression which non-terminating (i.e. which does not end)

 and non repeating decimal expression which lies between 2 and 3.
