    irrational is when the numbers after the decimal point are just 'irrational' no pattern

    it all changes after you complete basic calc, difEQ, and linear algebra. things get very different once you get into calc analysis, real analysis, group theory/abstract algebra, differential geometry, ....these are all things you will do, and none of it will be anything like what you are doing now.

    asdfasdf54514 I can't believe the answer to this question has become so huge (yeah a lot of it is irrelevant information). An irrational number is one that cannot be put into the form of a fraction. 1/7 - although that is a repeating decimal .142857142857142857..., it is a rational number.

    @wolf1728 you need to be careful with your wording its not that it cant be written in the form of a fraction as \[\frac{\pi}{2}\]is a fraction and is irrational the point is, that if the number is a real number and it cant be put in a ratio (fraction) where the numerator and denominator are integers then it is irrational.
