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).
