Introduction to smallest whole number:

A whole number is a natural number. In mathematics, there are two conventions for the set of natural numbers: it is either the set of positive integers {1, 2, 3, ...} according to the traditional definition; or the set of non-negative integers{0, 1, 2, ...} according to a definition first appearing in the nineteenth century. These purposes are related to the linguistic notions of cardinal and ordinal numbers, respectively.

 

 

 

Example problems for smallest whole number

 

Smallest whole number problem 1:

Find the smallest whole number of the given fractions (12 / 5), (4 / 3), (24 / 5) and (3 / 2)

Solution:

 Given fractions are (12 / 5), (4 / 3), (24 / 5) and (3 / 2)

Find the whole for each fraction, we get

                     (12 / 5) = 2. 4

The whole number of the fraction (12 / 5) is 2

                   (4 / 3) = 1. 33

The whole number of the fraction (4 / 3) = 1

                   (24 / 5) = 4.8

The whole number of the fraction (24 / 5) = 5

                  (3 / 2) = 1.5

The whole number is 2

Therefore,

The smallest whole number is 1

Answer:

The smallest whole number is 1

Smallest whole number problem 2:

Find the smallest whole number of the given fractions (17 / 4), (6 / 8), (10 / 5) and (12 / 4)

Solution:

 Given fractions are (17 / 4), (6 / 8), (10 / 5) and (12 / 4)

Find the whole for each fraction, we get

                     (17 / 4) = 4.25

The whole number of the fraction (17 / 4) is 4

                   (6 / 8) = 0. 75

The whole number of the fraction (6 / 8) = 1

                   (10 / 5) =2

The whole number of the fraction (10 / 5) = 2

                  (12 / 4) = 3

The whole number is 3

Therefore,

The smallest whole number is 1

Answer:

The smallest whole number is 1
