No. It is read as "zero point three" or "point three"

1.3 is read as 'one point three'.

If it has digits after a decimal point, then it's NOT a whole number.

A decimal number is simply a way of representing a number in such a way that the place value of each digit is ten times that of the digit to its right. A decimal representation does not require a decimal point. So the required decimal representation is 120, exactly as in the question.

120 is already in decimal form. You do not need to have a decimal point for a number to be in decimal form. All that is required is that the place values go down by a factor of one-tenth every time you move one digit to the right. Also the digit to the left of the decimal point (or where the decimal point would have been) has a unit place value.

0.110 is read as "ten thousandths".
