What is the difference between terminating and repeating numbers?

A terminating number has a definitive value - A repeating number continues indefinitely. For example - 10 divided by 8 is 0.125 (a terminating number) - 10 divided by 3 is 3.333333 (the decimal repeats indefinitely).

Is Pi a reacurng or terminating decimal?

Neither, it's an irrational number which never ends or repeats.

What is a example of a non-terminating and non-repeating decimal?

Previous Answer: Non terminating decimal - 1.66666666666666666..... Terminating decimal - 1.75 The first number is non-terminating but is NOT non-repeating. An example of a non-terminating non-repeating number would be Pi. It goes on forever and never repeats itself. 3.1415926535897932384626433832795...

What is the definition for non terminating non recurring decimal?

the number that never ends and never repeats the same format is called non terminating non recurring decimals

Why is a rational number a terminating or reapeting decimal?

A rational number terminates or repeats because in both cases they can be represented as a fraction (in a/b form.) When a number keeps going with no period (no part of the number repeats) it cannot be written in a/b form.

What is the difference between a terminating and a repeating decimal?

A terminating decimal reaches an end after a finite number of digits whereas a repeating decimal, after a finite number of digits, has a string of decimals (also of finite length) that repeats forever. Thus 1.2356 is a terminating decimal. 1.456333... is a repeating decimal with the digit 3 repeating an infinite number of times. So also is 23.56142857142857...... where the string 142857 repeats to infinity. In fact, terminating decimals may be viewed as repeating decimals with zero repeating infinitely.

Is 1.24562... an irrational number?

Irrational numbers are non-repeating, non-terminating decimals. If your number repeats, it's rational. If it doesn't, it's irrational.

What is terminating and non terminating numbers?

A terminating decimal number is one whose decimal representation ends after a final number of digits. A non-terminating decimal number is one whose decimal representation goes on forever. It could be in the form of a number-string that repeats infinitely, for example, 2/11 = 0.18181818.... or one in which there is no pattern (all irrational numbers). Analogous definitions apply to numbers expressed in other bases.

Does every non-terminating decimal represent an irrational number?

No; if the non-terminating decimal repeats then it represents a rational.Examples:0.3333... = 1/30.428571428571... = 3/70.181818... = 2/11

Is 0.7 terminating or non-terminating?

If it stops there as 0.7 then it is a terminating decimal number

What is a number that can be written as a fraction a decimal that ends and repeats?

A number can end or repeat but it cannot end andrepeat (other than repeat 000... or 999... ).A number that can be written as a terminating or repeating decimal is a rational number.

Is 29 an irrational number?

Integers are rational. Also, terminating decimal numbers, as well as repeating decimals (such as 3.12121212..., where "12" repeats over and over) are rational.

How do you change terminating but reapeating decimal into a fraction Example 0.88888?

It is not possible to have a terminating decimal which repeats or a repeating decimal which terminates. The two types are mutually exclusive.

Is -0.875 a terminating number?

The number you've written in the question is a terminating number.

Is a terminating decimal irrational?

An irrational number is a number that has no definite end and a terminating number is a number that has a definite end. So this means that a decimal that is terminating cannot be irrational.

Is 5.7777 A rational number?

Yes. If you mean 5.7777 as a terminating decimal it is 57777/10000 If you mean 5.7777... as a recurring decimal where the 7 repeats forever it is 57/9 If a decimal number terminates or repeats one or more digits forever it is a rational number. Otherwise if a decimal number goes on forever but does not repeat any digits (eg √2 = 1.41421356...) then it is an irrational number.

Is mode number that repeats the most in algebra?

No, but it is the number that repeats most in statistics.

What is non terminatin repeating decimal?

A terminating decimal is a rational number. A non-terminating, repeating decimal is a rational number. A non-terminating, non-repeating decimal is an irrational number.

Is the square root of 7 a non-terminating decimal?

Yes, the square root of 7 is an irrational number. Written in decimal form, it never terminates or repeats. √7 is approximately 2.645751311064591

Why is 4.89 a rational number?

It is a rational number because it can be turned into a fraction and unlike pi, which does not repeat itself. 4.333333333 would be a rational number because it is non-terminating, and repeats itself. basically, a rational number is any number made by dividing one integer by another(ratio).

Is pi a terminating or a repeating decimal?

It is non-terminating decimal and therefore it is an irrational number

Which is not a terminating decimal?

An irrational number is not a terminating decimal and it also can't be expressed as a fraction.

Is 9.55 a rational number?


Is 3.456 rational number?

Any number with terminating decimals (a finite number of decimal digits) is rational. (If it is non-terminating, but periodic, it is also rational.)
