# Find a certain base for converting a rational to a irrational number

It is very clear that we could not propose any problem in Mathematics because that maybe does not make sence. However this is my question:

Can we find any base, in which, a rational number is written as a irrational number?

Thanks and sorry if it is not proper on the site.

A number being rational if it is the ratio of two integers, and irrational otherwise. This is entirely independent of the base you write it in. –  Rahul May 26 '12 at 11:45

Any periodic or finite representation will lead to a fraction involving $e$, but they are all irrational (in the ordinary sense), so a rational number (in the ordinary sense) between 0 and 1 cannot represented that way.
