You are probably quite certain that the following numbers are irrational. But can you prove it?
a = 0.149162536496481...
b = 0.2357111317192329...
c = 0.1248163264128256...
When a rational number is represented with a decimal, there is a repeated pattern of a definite size. In each of the three numbers given, the size of the repeated pattern is everincreasing.
Isn't this enough to show they are not rational?
