Irrational numbers are non-repeating, non-terminating decimals. If your number repeats, it's rational. If it doesn't, it's irrational.

1.777...(repeating) is rational. Rational numbers are numbers that can be written as a fraction. Irrational numbers cannot be expressed as a fraction.

Non-repeating, non-terminating decimals.

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.

Terminating and repeating decimals are rational numbers.

Yes. Rational numbers are numbers or decimals that repeat or terminate. Irrational numbers do not. For example π is an irrational number.

No. Numbers with terminating or repeating decimals are rational.

If there's a repeating sequence then it's a rational number.

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

Irrational numbers can not be repeating decimals. Any number that is a repeating decimal is rational.

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.

Rational numbers - can be expressed as a fraction, and can be terminating and repeating decimals. Irrational numbers - can't be turned into fractions, and are non-repeating and non-terminating. (like pi)

either irrational numbers, integers, integers, rational numbers, or whole numbers

Repeating decimals are ALWAYS rational numbers.
