There is no such thing as "intergers".The complete list of two-digit positive whole numbers lists 90 of them.

If you allow decimals and fractions, there's no answer. If you're only interested in whole numbers ... the "counting " numbers ... then it's 136101522.

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

Different whole numbers are always whole numbers, but I suspect you meant to ask about the difference between whole numbers. You can subtract two whole numbers and get a negative result. Whole numbers can't be negative.

No. Natural numbers are a subset of whole numbers. Negative numbers are whole numbers but not natural.

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.
