The difference is that all whole numbers are decimal numbers, but not all decimal numbers are whole numbers. For example a whole number such as 1 is a decimal number but a decimal number such as 1.5 is not a whole number.
If you have a decimal, it means you have a portion of a number, not a whole number. For example, if you have $2.10, you have two whole dollars, but the ten cents are only a portion of a dollar (and notice, they are a "decimal" -- .10).
Decimal form is a whole number with part of a whole number.Thos is an example of a hundredths decimal.0.99 or 0.09.This one is for tenths.0.9.
Not necessarily: for example, consider 0.5 * 4 = 2
A decimal is a type of arithmetic number. It is not a whole number, but represents parts of numbers. For example, a decimal might be 10.25 or 0.456.
In whole numbers, a decimal follows the number. Example, in the number 7, the decimal is after it, 7.0 The decimal is not visible, but it is there.
(of a number) altering for convenience of expression or calculation, for example to the nearest whole number or multiple of ten or five
You can't change a whole number to a decimal. A decimal and a whole number are both numbers. A decimal is just a number lower than a whole number, or a number in between two whole numbers.
Often, yes. But it depends on the numbers. For example, if you multiply 1.5 x 2, you get 3 as the answer (whole number). But if you multiply 1.5 x 3, you get a decimal of 4.5
A decimal is a little dot that separates whole numbers from un-whole numbers. For example: 48.967 The number to the left of a decimal is a whole number and the number to the right of the decimal is an un-whole number, ie. a fraction.Decimals are the numbers that live in between whole numbers. Example: 1.5, which mean one and a half.relating to or denoting a system of numbers and arithmetic based on the number ten, tenth parts, and powers of ten:
If the number is before the decimal, it is a whole number. The numbers after the decimal represent fractions of whole numbers. For example if you had to work 8.5 hours, you would work 8 whole hours plus one half hour.
a decimal is part of a whole number e.g. 0.5 is half a whole numbera whole number is just a normal number e.g. 1, 2, 5, 8, 14, 56 etc. A whole number is on the left side of the dot and the decimal is on the right.Example: whole number decimal decimal number 43 . 684
No. A whole number will be on the left side of the decimal point. For example, a 2 in 2.43 is a whole number.
40, for example. Any number that is a whole number of twenties.
decimal point to the left of the whole number. Example: 1= whole number. Less than 1 as a decimal is .00, .01, 02 etc.
233% is a whole number and so the decimal point is unnecessary. Expressed as a fraction its is a multiple of 2 1/3, as a decimal it is a multiple of 2.33 recurring.
Dividing a decimal by a whole number is the same as multiplying the decimal by the whole number's reciprocal. Convert that fraction to its decimal equivalent and proceed.
No, because if it was a whole number it would contain no fractions or decimals. Decimal numbers should be preceded by a 0, which is a whole number, if there is no other whole number. For example, if you are changing 18/100 to a decimal, it should be written as 0.18 rather than just .18.
No. A whole number is a number with no fractional (decimal) part. Therefore a decimal number can not be a whole number. Another view: 35.0 is a whole number AND a decimal. The fact that a number is a decimal does not automatically require it to have a fractional part. Even 35 is a decimal number (without a decimal point).
Because it has no remaining fractions that aren't whole. There is no number after a decimal point if you were to place one. for example, 1.00
To write a decimal you go to the end of the whole number 5 for example and then you put a period (5.) then you add the rest of the decimal like 5.6
A decimal can only be a whole number when that whole number is written as 1.0, 2.0, 3.0, etc.
A decimal, in this context, is a useless description: a decimal can be an integer, a rational number or an irrational number. Furthermore, a whole number times a decimal fraction can be a whole number, a rational number or an irrational number.For example:4 * 3.5 = 14 is a whole number times a decimal fraction = whole number.4 * 3.3 = 13.2 is a whole number times a decimal fraction = rational fraction.4 * 3.14159... [ie pi in decimal form] = 4 * pi, which is an irrational number.
To convert a mixed number into a decimal, first you must convert the fraction part of the mixed number into decimal form. Do this by dividing the numerator (the top number) by the denominator (the bottom number). Then, place the whole number that was originally part of the mixed number as the whole number for the decimal. For example, let's convert this mixed number into a decimal: 51/4. 1/4 = 0.25 The whole number originally part of the mixed number, 51/4 is 5. Place 5 as the whole number for the decimal. Therefore, the answer is 5.25.
15,000 is already a whole number. A whole number is any number that is not a fraction or decimal. 15,00.96 would not be a whole number, but a decimal.
