First you add the fractions then add the whole numbers I'd you can you can reduce the fractions bye multiplying Hope you have fun!😺🐆💙💎💖🐾

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

Fractions are multiplied by multiplying numerator by numerator and denominator by denominator. The fractions may be simplified before multiplying. Whole numbers have the understood denominator of 1. Read this lesson on multiplying fractions if you need help on how to multiply fractions.you multiply the denomanators and the top number then multiply the whole #s then reduce your answer if you can. an example would be 3 8/9X6 8/9= 18 64/81 get it now?

You take a huge hammer and bang it until it is sand :) Giggle Giggle

Fractions help with numbers that are not whole numbers.

It is not. When multiplying two whole numbers you need not be concerned about placing the decimal point in the answer.

There is no pattern.

You simply put the whole number over one making it a fraction then you flip the reciprocal and divide the two fractions insted of multiplying.

There are an infinite number of both fractions and whole numbers.

Mixed fractions can't become whole numbers.

Yes, fractions can be whole numbers. For example, 8/4 = 2 2 is a whole number.

Adding and subtracting fractions can ONLY be done if the denominators are the same; then the calculation is done by adding or subtracting the numerators. Multiplying (and dividing) fractions does not require the denominators to be the same. To divide by a fraction the divisor is inverted (the original numerator becomes the new denominator and the original denominator becomes the new numerator) and then the fractions are multiplied. Multiplying fractions is achieved by multiplying the numerators together AND multiplying the denominators together. A whole number is the same as a fraction with the whole number as the numerator and a denominator of 1, so when multiplying by a whole number the denominator is multiplied by 1 (leaving it the same) and the is multiplication is effectively just multiplying the numerator by the whole number.

All whole numbers and fractions are rational numbers because irrational numbers can't be expressed as whole numbers or fractions.

Short answer - yes, fractions with whole numbers are rational. All whole numbers are rational. All fractions are rational. Rational numbers can be added to always make another rational number.

NO!

Whole numbers are integers that have no fractions or decimals.

Fractions.

Whole numbers are positive numbers and there are no fractions or decimals.

adding fractions is like adding a WHOLE lot of parts of numbers

The majority of fractions will not be able to become whole numbers. Certain improper fractions, where the numerator is a multiple of the denominator, can become whole numbers. No proper fractions can.

Integers are whole numbers, fractions are part of a whole number.

Yes

Integers or whole numbers

All whole numbers and fractions are rational numbers

It depends on what you want to do with them.
