Need to prove: If x is a real number and x^2=3, then x is irrational.

Need to prove: 1.) If x is a real number and x^2=3, then x is irrational. 2.) The proposition "if x is a real number and x^2=4, then x is irrational." is false since x=2=2/1 is rational and 2^2=4. Pinpoint where in the previous argument the proof of this proposition breaks down. See attached file for full problem desc
