The set of rational numbers includes all whole numbers, so SOME rational numbers will also be whole number. But not all rational numbers are whole numbers. So, as a rule, no, rational numbers are not whole numbers.

All rational numbers are not whole numbers, as rational numbers can include fractions.

Not all rational numbers are integers, but all integers are rational.

All whole numbers and fractions are rational numbers

No, it is not.

Some rational numbers are whole numbers, some are not. The set of whole numbers is a proper subset of rational numbers.

The set of rational numbers includes all whole numbers, so SOME rational numbers will also be whole number. But not all rational numbers are whole numbers. So, as a rule, no, rational numbers are not whole numbers.

Some rational numbers are whole numbers [3/1,10/5,0/2,etc.], but all whole numbers are rational numbers.

Some are, but all are not. 2/1 is rational and whole but 1/2 is rational and not whole. So the answer is a rational number is not necessarily a whole number.

Whole numbers ARE rational.

All whole numbers are rational so there are infinitely many rational numbers that are whole numbers.

Whole numbers are always rational

The question cannot be answered sensibly because it is based on a lack of understanding of rational numbers. Some rational numbers ARE whole numbers and so the question makes no sense.

All rational numbers are not whole numbers, as rational numbers can include 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.

Whole numbers are the same as integers. Whole numbers are a proper subset of rational numbers.

Natural and whole numbers are, and integers are rational.
