You can make any whole number into a fraction by putting it over 1.

6 is a whole number. you can't make a whole number into fraction

Yes, of course. For example, 9/4 * 4/9 = 1.

3.5 is a rational fraction and there is no sensible way to make it into a whole number.

A fraction is generally not a whole number, so you can't "make it into a whole" - any whole number would not have the same value. You can round a fraction to the nearest integer, if you like - but note that you would lose some precision if you do so.

to make a whole number into a fraction all you have to do is make it whatever the whole number is over one ex: 2 is your whole number, to make it a fraction simply put it over one. when you say it, you can say 2 over 1, 2 firsts, or 2 divided by 1. 2 divided by one does equal 2, your starting whole number.

You can convert any whole number into a fraction, by putting the whole number in the numerator, and the number "1" in the denominator.

Divide the denominator into the numerator. The number of times it goes, is the whole number. The remainder is the new numerator and the denominator stays the same unless you need to reduce the fraction.

i think you mean an improper fraction in that case you just times the whole number by the denominator and add that to the numerator and keep the old denominator and make it the new denominator.
