Nope, a whole number is a positive integer. But, if by negative fraction you mean (-6)/(-2) or something to that effect, then yes.

It means exactly what it says: divide a whole number by a rational fraction.

It is a division

a numerical quantity that is not a whole number

A mixed number is a whole number that is coupled with a fraction. For example: 7 9/15 (where 7 is the whole number and 9/15 is the fraction) or 5 3/4 (where 5 is the whole number and 3/4 is the fraction)

Yes, I can: multiply them by their negative reciprocal then the result will always be a negative whole number - the number -1. For example 5/8 → 5/8 × -8/5 = -1 However, if you mean by "convert" changing into an equivalent fraction, then only if they are the equivalent of a negative whole number can it be done. For example -8/2 = -4

It means how many times you can subtract the whole number from the fraction before you reach zero. Assuming you've not got a mixed fraction, the whole number will only be able to be subtracted a fractional number of times.

if you mean like, (-10)/5, then yes, it is simply a negative fraction, which works just like negative numbers.

it means like a whole numbe and a fraction for example three and five six three is the whole number and five six is the fraction

a whole number mixed with a fraction

a numerical quantity that is not a whole number
