Not necessarily. There are negative irrational numbers, such as negative pi, negative square root of 2, etc.. Some negative numbers that are rational include -2, -13, -8, -4/7, -241/39 etc.

Any number that can be expressed as a fraction. When converted to decimal, they either give a finite number of places (e.g. 3/8 becomes 0.375) or give a recurring decimal (E.g. 1/3 becomes 0.333333...etc) Irrational numbers include pi, square root of 2 and e.

All sets of numbers have an infinite number of common multiples. The set of common factors is finite, but can have more than one member. It is not possible to include a diagram in our answers,.

The factors of 33 include 1,3,11,33The factors of 55 include 1,5,11,55The factors of 77 include 1,7,11,77Therefore the greatest common factor of 33, 55 and 77 is 11.

The set of numbers that include the natural numbers, their opposites and 0 is called the set of integers.

Yes. The domain and range can include irrational numbers.

The exact area is 625*pi. Since pi is an irrational number, any exact answer must include pi and may not contain a decimal (or rational) approximation of pi.

The number 6.6 is already rounded to the nearest hundredth. If you wish to express this number and include hundredths, the number is equal to 6.60.

Yes, any positive number is a number that doesn't have a (-) behind it (-20; -23.67; -45.45454...), and is not zero (0). Any repeating number (see 3rd negative example) is irrational, no matter what its sign. Irrational numbers also include numbers (decimals, specifically) that don't repeat, but don't stop. Numbers that don't terminate include pi. Pi, as it is, is proof of a positive irrational number.

-8.0 is a rational number. Irrational numbers are things such as numbers that can't be expressed as a fraction in the a/b form. Such numbers that are irrational include pi, square roots of negative numbers, etc.

Irate, irksome, ironclad and ironic include the letters ir. Additional words include irrational, irregular, irrelevant, and irritating.

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)

no if yes, then why is there a term 'irrational numbers'? examples of irrational numbers include: sqrt(2), sqrt(3), sqrt (5), pi, e, 0.10100100010000010000001... etc.

No. Fractions do not include irrational numbers. And although there are an infinite number of both rationals and irrationals, there are far more irrational numbers than rationals.
