No. Numbers with terminating or repeating decimals are rational.

Yes.

Yes.

If they are non-terminating and there is a repeating pattern, then they are rational. If they are non-terminating and there is no repeating pattern, as in pi, they are irrational.

If you convert them into decimal form you can say there are terminating decimals, there are the integers, and there are repeating decimals. EX: 2.4 is a terminating decimal. 2.44444444... is a repeating decimal. 2 is an integer. all are rational numbers.

Not only non-terminating, but also non-repeating. 0.333... recurring is non-terminating but it is rational. In fact, most rational numbers are non-terminating decimals.

No. Irrational numbers are non-terminating decimals.

Their denominators have prime factors of 2 or 5.

All terminating decimals are rational.

Terminating numbers are decimal representations of rational numbers. Nonterminating numbers may or may not be rational numbers.

There are are three types of decimals: terminating, repeating and non-terminating/non-repeating. The first two are rational, the third is not.

They can be. For example, 3/11 = 0.272727... recurring forever.
