Best Answer

Decimals include a fractional part, represented by digits to the right of the decimal point, while whole numbers only have a whole part, represented by digits to the left of the decimal point. Whole numbers can be positive or negative, while decimals can also be fractions or mixed numbers. Additionally, whole numbers are used to count while decimals are used for measurement and precision.
