Toolbox:
  • The negation of a statement is denial of the statement.
The given statements are
"The number $x$ is a rational number." and
"The number $x$ is an irrational number."
The negation of the first statement is "The number $x$ is not a rational number"
which means $x$ is an irrational number which is the $2^{nd}$ statement.
$\therefore$ The given statements are negation of each other.
