### Does 200 square root ever end?

The root of ab is the same as the root of a multiplied by the root of b. So root 200 = root 100 x root 2 root 100 is 10, root 2 is an irrational number. Multiplying 10 by an irrational number gives an irrational number. Therefore, root 200 never ends.

It is irrational, because it is not a perfect square. For example, if you have a number that is perfect like the square root of 100, it would be 10, which is a rational number. An irrational number like 16.4 which would be a not so accurate result like 6.447583839, those are irrational numbers. Hope this helps!

No. The square root of most numbers is irrational - only if the number of which you take the root happen to be perfect squares, do you get a rational root. In this case, to take the square root of 3/4, 3 is not a perfect square, so the root is not rational. Or you can take .75 to be 75/100; once again, 75 is not a perfect square, so the root is irrational.

Not necessarily. The square root of 2.56 equals 1.6, and the square root of 0.25 equals 0.5, for two examples. If the decimal represents a rational number that is a fraction of two perfect squares, then the square root will be a rational number. The two examples I gave were 2.56 = 256/100, and 0.25 = 1/4.
