Repeating decimals are always rational.

Always

Yes.

A number with a finite number of decimal digits is always rational. (If the number of decimal digits is infinite, the number is rational only if there is a repeating pattern.)

Not always because any decimal that can be expressed as a fraction is a rational number as for example 0.33333.....repeating can be expressed as 1/3 which is a rational number

Yes. Any terminating decimal is a rational number. Any repeating decimal also.

No. A rational number is any terminating numeral. A repeating decimal is irrational.

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.

Any rational number is either a repeating decimal, or a terminating decimal.

Since 2.33333... is a repeating decimal (or recurring decimal), it is a rational number.

No. It is a rational number. Any repeating decimal or terminating decimal is rational.

All repeating decimals are rational numbers. Not all rational numbers are repeating decimals.

No, it is a rational.

Yes.

It is either a terminating decimal or a repeating decimal.

yes, it is not a repeating decimal

That is the definition of a rational number.

.833 IS a repeating decimal. This is a rational number as well as it has a repetitive pattern.

a rational number which is a fraction

Yes.

Yes- every terminating or repeating decimal number is rational.

Yes, it is a repeating decimal. Terminating and repeating decimals are rationals. Rational numbers can also be expressed as a fraction. 0.313131 is a repeating decimal.

A repeating decimal is any rational number whose decimal representation does not terminate after a given number of digits. As only a very small quantity of the rational numbers terminate in their decimal representation, practically any rational number picked at random will be a repeating decimal.

No, any repeating decimal digit is a rational number. It only states that it is non-terminating decimal. It is rational.
