# Which of the following is irrational

a. 0.14

b. \(0.14\overline{16}\)

c. \(0.\overline{1416}\)

d. 0.4014001400014…

**Solution:**

We know that

An __irrational number__ is __non terminating__ and non recurring

a. 0.14 is terminating

b. \(0.14\overline{16}\) is non terminating recurring

c. \(0.\overline{1416}\) is non terminating recurring

d. 0.4014001400014… is non terminating non recurring

Therefore, 0.4014001400014…is irrational.

**✦ Try This: **Which of the following is irrational? a. 0.15, b. \(0.15\overline{26}\), c. \(0.\overline{1526}\), d. 0.5015001500015…

We know that

An irrational number is non terminating and non recurring

a. 0.15 is terminating

b. \(0.15\overline{26}\) is non terminating recurring

c. \(0.\overline{1526}\) is non terminating recurring

d. 0.5015001500015… is non terminating non recurring

Therefore, 0.5015001500015…is irrational.
