Whole numbers are a proper subset of decimal numbers. All whole numbers are decimal numbers but not all decimal numbers are whole numbers.

As the 82 are whole numbers, it is 82.00 as a decimal

All whole numbers are decimal numbers.

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.

it has helped people say and write numbers in between whole numbers

No.

The different names for Numbers are defined as Natural numbers, whole numbers , real numbers, decimal numbers, integers, rational numbers and irrational numbers.

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.

The purpose is to separate whole numbers from fractional parts of whole numbers.

no, as there is a decimal point in the number. Whole numbers are numbers without decimal points

No, whole numbers have no numbers after the decimal point

No. Positive numbers can be whole numbers but they can also be decimal numbers and fractions. If a value is a whole number, it does not have a fraction or decimal part and it is not negative. Whole numbers are also called natural numbers or counting numbers.

No as that this number has a decimal point. Whole numbers are numbers without decimal points

Decimal products are numbers that are the result of multiplication procedures and are not whole numbers. Decimal quotients are numbers that are the result of division procedures and are not whole numbers.

Whole numbers are ones without fractional parts (ie no decimal points) eg 1 22 33 99 7654 1000000000

whole numbers

They arn't decimal numbers

You can't change a whole number to a decimal. A decimal and a whole number are both numbers. A decimal is just a number lower than a whole number, or a number in between two whole numbers.

Decimals are used to describe parts of a number, something in between two whole numbers. Tenths, halves, eights etc. But 108 is only whole numbers, so there's nothing there to use a decimal for.

Adding decimal same as adding whole numbers

A decimal number is a way of representing numbers so that the place value of any digit is ten times that of the digit to its right. You can have whole numbers in binary, octal, hexadecimal etc bases. A decimal number may or may not have a fractional part. A whole number cannot have a fractional part.

When writing a decimal out in words, the numbers before the decimal are written as if they are whole numbers, and the numbers after the decimal are read as digits. Therefore, for example, 150.35 is read one hundred and fifty point three five.

rename 8/1 as a whole number

To the left of a decimal point are whole numbers. On the right of a decimal point are parts of a whole number.

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