Yes - provided any number large or small has no fraction or decimal attached to it, it is a whole number.

When you give a full solution in dividing a small number by a bigger number, you list all the decimals that are in the answer, or you list the solution in its simplest fraction form.

You take the atomic mass (the small number in the upper left corner of the square in the periodic table) and subtract the atomic number from it (the big bold number on the periodic table)

If the 5 and the number are seperated by a line its a fraction. But if its just on top of it to the right then its an exponet.

a small fraction

Well, a "small" whole number would be 1. A whole number is any number that isn't a fraction of a number (2.5 wouldn't be a whole number) (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, etc would be whole numbers).

An insignificantly small fraction.

1. Locate the element on the periodic table.2. Find the element’s atomic number (which is the same as the number of protons)3. Find the element’s atomic weight.4. Round off the atomic weight to the nearest whole number to find the atomic mass.5. Subtract the atomic number from the atomic mass (The numbers after the decimal point represent the usually very small mass of the electrons in the atom.)
