Best Answer

A decimal number is a way of representing numbers so that the place value of any digit is ten times that of the digit to its right. You can have whole numbers in binary, octal, hexadecimal etc bases.

A decimal number may or may not have a fractional part. A whole number cannot have a fractional part.

The question is based on a false premise: the opposite of a decimal is not a whole. A decimal is simply a way of representing a number is such a way that the place value of each digit is ten times that of the digit to its right. Therefore 4 is a decimal, 2.75 is a decimal. There are different ways of defining opposite. The additive opposites of the two numbers are -4 and -2.75 so one of them is a whole number, the other is not. The multiplicative opposites are 0.25 and 0.3636... so neither of them are whole.
