What are some facts about Irrational numbers'?

Irrational numbers are numbers that can't be expressed as fractions and are never ending decimals that can't be expressed as fractions as for example the value of pi as in a circle.

What do you call never ending decimals?

It depends on whether they are never ending but recurrent or never ending but non-recurring. An example of the first is 2/11 = 0.1818.... where the 18s go on for ever. This is called a recurring decimal. An example of the second is the decimal representation of sqrt(2) = 1.41421356... which goes on forever, but which does not settle into a repeating pattern. These are called non-recurring decimals.

What is the largest number that rounds to 400 to the nearest hundred?

What is the name of the decimal that never stops?

Are all decimals irrational numbers?

only decimals that never end and never repeat are irrational. a decimal is rational if it can be written as a fration or ratio of two numbers. for example: .3434343434343434... 100x=34.34343434... -x 99x=34 34/99

How is dividing decimals different than dividing whole numbers?

in dividing decimals you never get a remainder and in dividing whole numbers you do. +++ More to the point perhaps, you are working in powers of 10 all the time.

Is there a chart that converts decimals to inches?

No and there never will be. Decimals are a way to express number. They are not lengths, or mass, or volume or time or anything. Just pure unadulterated numbers. And numbers cannot be measured in inches!
