Terminating and repeating decimals are rational numbers.

No because non-repeating decimals may be terminating.But suppose you consider terminating decimals as consisting of repeating 0s. That is, 1/8 = 0.125 = 0.12500....Then all non-repeating decimals are irrational.

Non-repeating decimals is not a word but a phrase. Non-repeating decimals are irrational numbers.
