Fractions are not whole numbers. They are fractions. You can call a fraction a whole number, but that doesn't make it one.

13/15 is closest to one whole rather than one half.

one whole

No. All fractions are not whole numbers, but all whole numbers are [improper] fractions (with a denominator of 1).

Decimals and fractions are PART of a whole

Mixed Fractions are fractions that have whole numbers and fractions on the side.If you are trying to change them into improper fractions you take the denominator of the fraction and multiply it by the whole number and keep the same numerator. ex.: 2 and one fourth =

It is a prime number. And the appropriate word is factors, not fractions.

you can turn a whole number into a fraction by simply putting it over one like this 3/1 = 3 after you turn the whole number its just multiplying two fractions

If it's a whole number, then it will be out of one. Ex: 14= 14/1 . Otherwise, for regular fractions, it depends

Any whole number can be converted to a fraction by putting it over one.

Whole numbers have prime factors, not fractions.

Fractions are infinitely dense and this means that between any two fractions there an infinite number of fractions. If any fraction, f, laid claims to being the nearest, there would be infinitely many fractions between 0 and f and so infinitely many fractions which were closer to 0. This means that f could not be the closest. The argument can be used again and again and so there cannot be a fraction closest to 0.
