Best Answer

If you divided the whole number by Anything greater than 1 and the answer would be less than the whole number.

If you divide the whole number by 1 the answer would be the same as the whole number.

When you go smaller than 1 - say 0.5 then this is the same as a half 1/2 and there are 2 halves in the number 1

Thus if you divide the whole number by 0.5 the answer would be twice the whole number.
