  1. Hi

    Please check out the Student Blog on the way to cite the resource. In the citation, the URL should be less complication. Please update.

  2. If there are no whole numbers then we cant tell each other easily how much of something we want. With whole numbers it is easier to tell each other the physical quantity we want

  3. How can you define whole numbers? The only mention is that if there were no whole numbers, counting would be much difficult eg.( fractions, decimals ). And how would it be more convenient and easier to count objects? And is in school solving maths problem the only place where we use whole numbers?
