A rational number in essence is any number that can be expressed as a fraction of integers (i.e. repeating decimal). Taking the product of any number of rational numbers will always yield another rational number.

No. The easiest counter-example to show that the product of two irrational numbers can be a rational number is that the product of √2 and √2 is 2. Likewise, the cube root of 2 is also an irrational number, but the product of 3√2, 3√2 and 3√2 is 2.
