  1. .3434343434....
    = 34/100 + 34/10,000 + 34/1,000,000 .....
    = 34 ( 1/100 + 1/100 *1/100 + 1/100 * 1/100*1/100 ......
    = 34 (1 + r + r^2 ......
    oh my. geometric series. Google math is fun sum of geometric sequence
    = 34 (1/ [ 1 - .01) = 34 / 0.99 = = 3400/99
    well that is perfectly rational
    it repeats
    it does not terminate but goes on forever
