Repeating decimals are rational numbers if there is a pattern, like 0.22222222. If it is not a pattern, like 0.568964329, it is an irrational number.

True

No. An irrational number has a whole number, followed by a decimal, which has no repeating pattern to it. For example, Pi: 3.14159265358979...... it goes on forever, with no pattern. unlike 5 and one-third: 5.33333333333333.... it goes on forever, but there is a pattern to it. or 4.12121212121212

Any time a pattern of digits repeats over and over, it's a rational number.

haha? a pattern or sequence that is constantly repeating..

Yes, properties vary systematically. So there is a repeating pattern in graph.

Decimal numbers that never end but that end up having a repeating pattern are called recurring decimals or repeating decimals.Examples would be 1/3 = 0.33333333...or 452/555 = 0.8144144144144144... (where 144 is the repeating pattern).Reaching that repeating pattern is known as becoming periodic. Only rational numbers will have a repeating pattern. (The repeating pattern may be 00000, as in 4/2 = 2.00000... .)If a decimal number continues forever without having a repeating pattern, then it is a irrational number. One example of a number that continues forever without repeating would be Ï€ (pi) which continues infinitely without repeating.Pi is also referred to as a transcendental number.

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.
