Q: Can a number that repeats be terminating?

Write your answer...

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).

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

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...

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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

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.

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

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

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

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.

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.

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

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.

Yes, the square root of 7 is an irrational number. Written in decimal form, it never terminates or repeats. âˆš7 is approximately 2.645751311064591

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).

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

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

Yes

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

No.
