Actually the product of a nonzero rational number and another rational number will always be rational.

The product of a nonzero rational number and an IRrational number will always be irrational. (You have to include the "nonzero" caveat because zero times an irrational number is zero, which is rational)

Not if the rational number is zero. In all other cases, the product is irrational.


What does a rational number times an irrational number equal?

The product of 0 and an irrational is 0 (a rational), the product of a non-zero rational and any irrational is always irrational.


Is the product of a rational number and an irrational number always irrational?

No. 0 is a rational number and the product of 0 and any irrational number will be 0, a rational. Otherwise, though, the product will always be irrational.

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


Why is the product of a rational number and an irrational number irrational?

The question cannot be answered because it is based on a false premise.The product of a (not an!) rational number and an irrational number need not be irrational. For eample, the product ofthe rational number, 0, and the irrational number, pi, is 0. The product is rational, not irrational!


Is the quotient of two nonzero numbers always a rational number?

Yes, as long as the two nonzero numbers are themselves rational. (Since a rational number is any number that can be expressed as the quotient of two rational numbers, or any number that can be written as a fraction using only rational numbers.) If one of the nonzero numbers is not rational, the quotient will most likely be irrational.


Is the product of a rational number and an irrational number an irrational?

Not necessarily. 0 times any irrational number is 0 - which is rational.


Is the product of a rational and irrational number always irrational?

No, but the only exception is if the rational number is zero.
