I choose rational and irrational numbers.
Rational numbers are numbers that we can add and multiply, this numbers can be expressed as fraction, decimal numbers or as a percentage. While irrational numbers are numbers that identifies as whole number fraction, having denominator which is not equal to zero.
Some of similarities of rational and irrational numbers are that both numbers belong to real numbers; they can be written as fraction and they can be positive or negative numbers. Some of the differences of both numbers are that rational numbers can have perfect square, fraction, repeating or terminating decimal. While irrational numbers cannot have perfect square, they are not fraction, non-repeating and non-terminating decimal.
We can relate this numbers to God or concept of faith by believing in God, in his existence, in his love and in his support. Thus, he is rational because he is real. Some of the evident does not show any evidence for the existence Of God this makes it irrational.
My concepts can be applied in real world in many ways we use rational and irrational numbers in our daily life, if we are measuring things, counting, eating and many more.

A rational number is a number that can be written as a fraction. It is any number that can be represented as the ratio of two integers. It is an integer that can be divided by another integer. A repeating decimal and a repeating square are also considered rational numbers. Irrational numbers are numbers that are not rational for example 3.14 (PI). An irrational number is also a number that “cannot be written as all the numbers in the real numbers system that cannot be written as a ratio of two integers”. An irrational number cannot be made into a fraction. Unlike a rational number the decimal does not repeat, it is also a non-perfect square.
In terms of faith I feel this math concept can be related by showing the infinite of the irrational number. The irrational number is never ending much like Gods love for man.
