True or false:

\( \quad \) The sum of two irrational numbers is always irrational.

\[\Large \color{red}{A} - \color{blue}{B} = \color{red}{A} \div \color{blue}{B}\]

If whole numbers \(\color{red}{A}\) and \(\color{blue}{B}\) satisfy this equation, then what is \(\color{red}{A} + \color{blue}{B}?\)


Bonus: Can you explain why there is only one solution?

Which of these statements are true?

(A). "\(1\) is a prime number"

(B). "\(0\) is neither even nor odd"
