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

No.

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

In non-decimal form, it is either a whole number of written as a fraction (a ratio) of two whole numbers. In decimal form, it is either terminating or (after a finite number of digits) recurring.

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.

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.

No, whole numbers have no numbers after the decimal point

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.
