Which whole number lies between 25/4 and 22/3?
A set of whole numbers consists of the numbers 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, ..., and so on. The members of the set of whole numbers are all positive integers (natural numbers) and zero.
Answer: 7 is the whole number that lies between 25/4 and 22/3.
Let's express the given numbers as decimals to find between which two whole numbers will lie on the number line.
25/4 is expressed as a decimal as 6.25. This means that 25/4 lies between the whole numbers 6 and 7 on the number line.
Similarly, 22/3 is expressed as a decimal as 7.333... This means that 22/3 lie between the whole numbers 7 and 8 on the number line.
Let's now use the number line to represent the above conditions:
Clearly, 7 is the whole number that lies between 25/4 and 22/3.
