Hey.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Assume you have a signal ##f## with period ##T_f## and a signal ##g## with period ##T_g##. Then the signal ##h= f+g## is periodic iff ##T_f/T_g \in \mathbb{Q}##.

So if ##T_f/T_g## is an irrational number, the signal ##h## will not be periodic. Why is this actually the case?
