### What do integers allow you to do that whole numbers do not?

The term "whole numbers" is ambiguous; it may refer either to integers, or only to positive integers (perhaps including zero).

### What is a nonzero whole number that can be evenly divided into that number?

Any non-zero whole number can be evenly divided into itself. If n is a whole number, n/n = 1. In fact, 0 is the only number, whole or not, for which this is not true. Additionally, 'whole number' is a vague term. It can refer to non-zero positive integers, positive integers including zero, or all integers depending entirely on the meaning of the person using the term.
