Not.

No, if a decimal does not terminate or repeat, it is not a rational number. Rational numbers can be expressed as a ratio of two integers, and their decimal representation either terminates or repeats after a certain point. Decimals that do not have a pattern and continue indefinitely are considered irrational numbers.

a rational number repeats but terminates.ex:3.333333333. a irrational number doesn't terminate or repeat itself. ex:3.334334433444.

A repeating decimal is any rational number whose decimal representation does not terminate after a given number of digits. As only a very small quantity of the rational numbers terminate in their decimal representation, practically any rational number picked at random will be a repeating decimal.

Decimals that terminate or repeat in some fashion are rational, while decimals that expand forever are irrational.

7/8 is a rational number because rational numbers are fractions, numbers that terminate, numbers that repeat.

That isn't possible. Rational numbers either terminate or have a repeating pattern, and irrational numbers are all the rest. Perfect squares terminate, therefore they are rational.

Not always because any number that can be expressed as a fraction is a rational number as for example 0.666...recurring can be expressed as 2/3 as a fraction

-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.

Yes. Any number that can be expressed as a finite or repeating decimal is a rational number. Irrational numbers have decimal expansions that neither repeat nor terminate.

The product of two rational numbers is a rational number. All decimal numbers that terminate or end with a repeating sequence of digits are rational numbers. As both 0.54732814 (as written) and 0.5 are terminating decimals, they are both rational numbers. As 0.54732814 is a rational number and 0.5 is a rational number, their product will also be a rational number.

Yes. Rational numbers are numbers or decimals that repeat or terminate. Irrational numbers do not. For example π is an irrational number.
