Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you can come up with a counterexample to the statement, then the statement is false. sqrt(2) and sqrt(8) are two irrational numbers. If you multiply them together, you get sqrt(16) = 4. Since 4 is a rational number, you have shown that the product of two irrational numbers is not ALWAYS an irrational number.
