Let A be a non-zero rational number and B be an irrational number and let A*B = C.Suppose their product C, is rational.Then, dividing both sides of the equation by A gives B = A/C.Now, since A and C are both rational, A/C must be rational.Therefore you have B (irrational) = A/C (irrational).Clearly, this is impossible and therefore the supposition must be wrong. That is to say, A*B cannot be ration or, it must be irrational.

no. irrational numbers are always infininately long, otherwise the could be represented as a fraction by multiplying by 10^n and dividing by 10^n where n is a number large enough to make the number a number with no decimals.

When added to a rational number, any irrational number will produce an irrational number.also, when added to an irrational number, any rational number will produce an irrational number.

An irrational number.

-Pi is irrational, because it does not terminate or repeat. Whenever you multiply an irrational number by a rational number (-1), the result is an irrational number.

A rational number is any number that can be made by dividing one integer by another.0.5 is a rational number as it can be made by dividing the number 1 by the number 22 is a rational number because it can be made by dividing 2 by 1-6.6 is a rational number because it can be made by dividing -66 by 10---------------------------------------------------------Note there are number that are called irrational numbers. Irrational numbers are all "real" numbers (numbers with a decimal point) that cannot be written as a simple fraction - the decimal goes on forever without repeating.For instance the number Pi is an irrational number.A rational number is a real number that can be expressed as a ratio of two integers. Another way to think about it is this: if you can write a number as a fraction then it's a rational number.

No. The sum of an irrational number and any other [real] number is irrational.

The sum of a rational and irrational number must be an irrational number.

That is not what mathematicians mean by an irrational number, which is a number with an infinitely long decimal expansion. You will note that since division is the inverse of multiplication, dividing by small numbers has the same effect as multiplying by large numbers, and so dividing by zero, which is an infinitely small number, is equivalent to multiplying by infinity. The result in most cases is deemed to have no mathematical meaning.

No. this is not a irrational number

It is not an irrational number!
