you turn the decimal into a fraction then you turn the fraction into a whole number and add a percent sign

For example: 4/1 = 4.0

Dividing a decimal by a whole number is the same as multiplying the decimal by the whole number's reciprocal. Convert that fraction to its decimal equivalent and proceed.

a decimal is part of a whole number e.g. 0.5 is half a whole numbera whole number is just a normal number e.g. 1, 2, 5, 8, 14, 56 etc. A whole number is on the left side of the dot and the decimal is on the right.Example: whole number decimal decimal number 43 . 684

To change a whole number with a decimal into a fraction, you take the decimal and put it into a fraction in simplest form. Let me give you an example so you understand better: 13.678 = 13 678/1000 = 13 339/500. You change it to a mixed fraction.

No. A whole number is a number with no fractional (decimal) part. Therefore a decimal number can not be a whole number. Another view: 35.0 is a whole number AND a decimal. The fact that a number is a decimal does not automatically require it to have a fractional part. Even 35 is a decimal number (without a decimal point).

A decimal can only be a whole number when that whole number is written as 1.0, 2.0, 3.0, etc.

The whole number will stay the same. Convert the proper fraction part of the mixed number to a decimal by dividing the denominator into the numerator. 2 and 3/8 = 2.375
