Short answer - yes, fractions with whole numbers are rational. All whole numbers are rational. All fractions are rational. Rational numbers can be added to always make another rational number.

Whole numbers are always rational

No, only a small minority are whole numbers.

Whole numbers are always rational.

All whole numbers are rational so there are infinitely many rational numbers that are whole numbers.

Some rational numbers are whole numbers, some are not. The set of whole numbers is a proper subset of rational numbers.

No. Every rational number is not a whole number but every whole number is a rational number. Rational numbers include integers, natural or counting numbers, repeating and terminating decimals and fractions, and whole numbers.

The set of rational numbers includes all whole numbers, so SOME rational numbers will also be whole number. But not all rational numbers are whole numbers. So, as a rule, no, rational numbers are not whole numbers.

No because all whole numbers are rational

A rational number can always be written as (one whole number) divided by (another whole number). That's not only a characteristic of a rational number, it's the definition of one.

Rational numbers are numbers that can be written as a fraction. A whole number is a number with no decimals.

Yes, 191 is a whole number. All whole numbers are rational numbers.

Any number that can be expressed as a fraction is a rational number which includes whole numbers

Some are, but all are not. 2/1 is rational and whole but 1/2 is rational and not whole. So the answer is a rational number is not necessarily a whole number.

-- Every whole number is a rational number. -- Any whole number divided by any whole number (except zero) produces a rational number.

56 is a rational whole natural number. Or to put it another way: 56 is a Natural number, but as all natural numbers are also whole numbers 56 is also a whole number, but as all whole numbers are also rational numbers 56 is also a rational number. Natural numbers are a [proper] subset of whole numbers; Whole numbers are a [proper] subset of rational numbers. The set of rational numbers along with the set of irrational numbers make up the set of real numbers

Yes. In fact, every whole number is a rational number.

No, whole numbers are only a small subset of rational numbers.

No, all whole numbers are rational. Rational numbers are numbers that can be written as a fraction. Irrational numbers cannot be expressed as a fraction.

All whole numbers and fractions are rational numbers

False because all whole numbers are rational

No, 1/2 is rational, but not a whole number.

Every whole number is rational and an integer. But the "natural" numbers are definedas the counting numbers, so the negative whole numbers wouldn't qualify.No and yes: it is not a natural number but it is a rational number.

Because all whole numbers are rational. 10 can be written as 10/1.

The question cannot be answered because it is nonsensical. The difference between two rational numbers is very very rarely a whole number.
