Can a fraction and a whole number be divided?

Yes. If you mean dividing a whole number INTO a fraction here is how you do it. Take the whole number and write it as a fraction where the whole number is the numerator (top part of the fraction) and the number "1" is the denominator (the bottom part of the fraction). Now, turn that fraction upsides down so that the "1" is on top and the whole number is on the bottom. Multiply the numerator of the original fraction times the "1" giving you the original numerator as the new numerator. Multiply the whole number times the original denominator giving you the new denominator. If you means dividing the fraction into the whole number it is similar. Write the whole number as a fraction (as above) with 1 in the denominator. Then flip the fraction over and multiply the two numerators, the two denominators and you have your answer.


Whole number times decimals?

A decimal, in this context, is a useless description: a decimal can be an integer, a rational number or an irrational number.

[ie pi in decimal form] = 4 * pi, which is an irrational number.
