The difference is that all whole numbers are decimal numbers, but not all decimal numbers are whole numbers.

For example a whole number such as 1 is a decimal number but a decimal number such as 1.5 is not a whole number.

Can a decimal number be a whole number?

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).

What is the difference between a decimal and a decimal point?

A decimal is a value, a decimal point separates the whole number from the fraction.EG 12.34 is a decimal, the point is the dot in the middle...a decimal is a group of number combined to make a number problem and a decimal point divides it so you wont get confusedEX: candy bar $ 1.50 without the decimal point $150


What difference does it make if the decimal is placed before or after the number?

What is the difference between adding whole numbers and adding decimals?

The main difference is that with whole numbers the decimal point is "hiding" (after the last digit of each whole number) whereas with decimal numbers it is clearly visible. In both cases the numbers are added with the decimal points aligned - with whole numbers there are no digits after the decimal points so the decimal points are not written, but if they were they would be visible after the last digit of the whole numbers and they would be automatically aligned; with decimal numbers there may be a different number of digits after each decimal point so it is up to the person doing the arithmetic to ensure the decimal points are aligned.
