A terminating decimal is a rational number. A non-terminating, repeating decimal is a rational number. A non-terminating, non-repeating decimal is an irrational number.

A decimal is rational if it:either ends and doesn't go on forever; ORit is a repeating decimal.A decimal is irrational if it goes on forever and ever and never stops without repeating.The number: 5.77777777 is rational because it goes on forever, REPEATING the same number (the digit 7).It can also repeat a group of numbers, like the number: 8.789789789789789789See how the "789" is REPEATING over and over again and never stops? That is a rational decimal!
