Yes.

Not at all. 0.33333... nonterminating = 1/3 rational 0.66666... nonterminating = 2/3 rational 0.1428571428... nonterminating = 1/7 rational 0.55555... nonterminating = 5/9 rational

No, they are not. Recurring decimals are rational.

Irrational numbers are real numbers.

Not necessarily. The sum of two irrational numbers can be rational or irrational.

Irrational numbers.

Yes.

an irrational number

No, they are not. Recurring decimals are rational.

It is an infinite non-repeating decimal which represents an irrational number.

A nonterminating number does not end. An example is the fraction 1/3. When written as a decimal, it is a nonterminating number. Also pi is a nonterminating number. Some nonterminating numbers are repeating, some are nonrepeating. But they just don't end.

a terminating decimal is one that has an end like 1/2 is 0.5 nonterminating does not end like 1/3 is 0.33333333333333333333333333333333333333333... where there are an infinite number of 3s on the end. 1/4 is 0.25 so it is also terminating pi is a nonterminating number it is 3.14159265359... it also doesn't have a set pattern to go by so its not only a nonterminating decimal, but it is an irrational number. Hope that helps

Yes.

Terminating numbers are decimal representations of rational numbers. Nonterminating numbers may or may not be rational numbers.

They are irrational numbers!
