Question 1.
If a property holds for rational numbers, will it also hold for integers? For whole numbers? Which will? Which will not?
Solution:

1. Any property which is true for rational numbers, is also true for integers except for any integers ‘a’ and ‘b’, (a + b) is not necessarily an integer.
2. All properties which are true for rational numbers, are also true for whole numbers except:
• For ‘a’ and ‘b’ being whole numbers, (a – b) may not be a whole number.
• For ‘a’ and ‘b’ being whole numbers (b ≠ 0), a + b may not be a whole number. Try these (page 13)
