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.

Can a decimal number be a whole number?

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.

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.

What can you find how finding a whole number estimate before your multiply the decimal can help you make sure your decimal placement is correct?

Not really.If you are competent in using the basic operations of arithmetic (+ - * /) and follow the riles as these apply to decimal numbers then the decimal point will be correctly placed and finding a whole number estimate will only mean additional calculations which serve no purpose. On the other hand, if you are not that competent then how can you be sure that the whole number estimate that you find is accurate?

How do you divide a decimal by a whole number?

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.

Can a decimal be a whole number?
