    so spring if you put that into a calculator it never stops. the only reason it does is because there is not enough room on a calculator when the number is infinite and never terminates

    an example of a problem that ends with a terminating rational number is 5/2. you get 2.5.. That's it.

    while 1/3 = 0.333333 and so on but 1 over 3 is not irrational. just because can be expressed as a fraction
