# What is difference between number and integer?

\nan integer is a whole number

# How are integers and rational numbers different?

All integers are rational numbers, not all rational numbers areintegers. Rational numbers can be expressed as fractions, p/q,where q is not equal to zero. For integers the den…ominator is 1. 5 is an integer, 2/3 is a fraction, both are rational.

# How are the integers and rational numbers different?

Integers are a subset of the set of all rational numbers. By definition, a rational number can be exactly expressed as the ratio of two integers. Only if the ratio can be simp…lified so that the denominator is 1 is a rational number an integer.

# Is the difference of two rational numbers an integer?

It can be but it certainly doesn't have to be. 3/4 and 1/2 are both rational numbers. (3/4) - (1/2) = 1/4, which is not an integer.

# How do rational number differ from integers?

Rational numbers include integers, but they also include fractions.

# What is the difference between a number and an integer?

The group of integers consists of all whole numbers and their opposites. So, integers are... -2, -1, 0, 1, 2... However, 4/5, square root of 7, and Pi are all numbers, just no…t integers. All integers are numbers, but not all numbers are integers.

# How are the integers and rational numbers are different?

They're not different. The integers are a part of the rational numbers.

# Is the difference between two rational numbers always an integer?

When you consider how many rational numbers there are, the difference between any two of them is hardly ever an integer. Examples: 5 - 4 / 5 = 4 1 / 5 5 / 6 - 2 /… 3 = 1 / 6 3.274 - 1.368 = 1.906 All of the nine numbers in these examples are rational numbers.

# What is the difference between an integer answer and a number answer?

A number answer can be correctly solved by whatever numbers happen to solve it, with no restrictions as to what type of numbers they may be: fractional, rational, real, etc. A…n integer answer requires that the result be expressed only as an integer, which is a positive or negative whole number (including zero). As such, integer answers are a subset of number answers.

# What is the difference from integer and rational numbers?

There is no difference because all integers or whole numbers are considered to be rational numbers.

# Is the difference between a rational number an integer?

A rational number simply is any number that can be put into a fraction or have a terminating/repeating decimal. (Ex. 3= 3/1 or 1/2 or .3333333333= 1/3) An integer is any natur…al or whole number and their negatives (...... -4, -3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 ......etc.)

# How can you tell the difference between a rational number and an integer?

You probably don't have to inspect that pair too closely. Every integer IS a rational number.

# How are the integers and rational number different?

Integers or whole numbers are rational numbers because they can be expressed as fractions as for example 6 as a fraction is 6/1 but irrational numbers can't be expressed as fr…actions.
