It will be irrational.

If you multiply a rational and an irrational number, the result will be irrational.

yes * * * * * No. Rational and irrational numbers are two DISJOINT subsets of the real numbers. That is, no rational number is irrational and no irrational is rational.

yes pi*(1/pi) = 1

You can multiply any pair of rational numbers as well as any irrational number and its reciprocal (or a rational multiple of its reciprocal. Thus pi * 3/7*(1/pi) is rational.

Some irrational numbers can be multiplied by another irrational number to yield a rational number - for example the square root of 2 is irrational but if you multiply it by itself, you get 2 - which is rational. Irrational roots of numbers can yield rational numbers if they are raised to the appropriate power

No irrational number can turn into a rational number by itself: you have to do something to it. If you multiply any irrational number by 0, the answer is 0, which is rational. So, given the correct procedure, every irrational number can be turned into a rational number.

It will be irrational.

No. If it was a rational number, then it wouldn't be an irrational number.

If you multiply a rational and an irrational number, the result will be irrational.

Irrational. If you multiply a rational number by an irrational number, you will always get an irrational number (except if the rational number happens to be zero).

yes * * * * * No. Rational and irrational numbers are two DISJOINT subsets of the real numbers. That is, no rational number is irrational and no irrational is rational.

No. The number pi is irrational, and if you multiply an irrational number by a non-zero rational number (in this case, -2), you will get another irrational number.As a general guideline, most calculations that involve irrational numbers will again give you an irrational number.

No, they are complementary sets. No rational number is irrational and no irrational number is rational.Irrational means not rational.

-- There's an infinite number of rational numbers. -- There's an infinite number of irrational numbers. -- There are more irrational numbers than rational numbers. -- The difference between the number of irrational numbers and the number of rational numbers is infinite.

No. Real numbers are divided into two DISJOINT (non-overlapping) sets: rational numbers and irrational numbers. A rational number cannot be irrational, and an irrational number cannot be rational.

yes pi*(1/pi) = 1
