    first, 0.57 stops and doesn't go on and on with no pattern at all. then, 0.57 can be represented as a fraction-57/100!

    A rational number is a ratio of two integers such that the second term of the ratio does not equal zero. Rational Number:\[\left\{ \frac{ a }{ b }|b \neq0 \right\}\]where a and b are both integers. Any rational number may be expressed as either terminating or repeating decimal number.

    @ohhsnapitsgabbyy so based on this, do you think that 0.57 is rational? Why or why not?
