can you ever use a calculator to determine if a number is rational or irrational

If a number is a terminating decimal like 0.25 or recurring decimal like 0.3333333...

then the number is rational.

But if it is neither terminating nor recurring like 1.414 etc for sq root of 2 or 3.14159 etc for pi, then it is irrational
