 # Can A Decimal Be An Integer?

Every integer can be expressed as a decimal, but most numbers that can be expressed as a decimal are not integers.

If all the digits after the decimal point are zeroes, the number is an integer.

If there are any non-zero digits after the decimal point, the number is not an integer.

## Can an integer have a decimal?

Integers. Integers whole numbers that can be positive, negative or zero, but have no decimal places or fractional parts. They are like the counting numbers but can be negative. For more see Integer Definition.

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

An integer is a whole number (not a fraction) that can be positive, negative, or zero. Therefore, the numbers 10, 0, -25, and 5,148 are all integers. Unlike floating point numbers, integers cannot have decimal places. Decimal numbers may either be rounded or truncated to produce an integer result.

## Can decimals and fractions be integers?

Fractions and decimals are not integers. All whole numbers are integers (and all natural numbers are integers), but not all integers are whole numbers or natural numbers. For example, -5 is an integer but not a whole number or a natural number.

## What type of number is decimal?

True! In decimal form, a number is either non-terminating and non-repeating (so it’s an irrational) or else it’s not (so it’s a rational); there is no overlap between these two number types!

## Is Pi a rational number?

Example: π (Pi) is a famous irrational number.

We cannot write down a simple fraction that equals Pi. The popular approximation of 22/7 = 3.1428571428571 is close but not accurate. Another clue is that the decimal goes on forever without repeating.

## How do you turn a decimal into an integer?

Converting binary integer to decimal

To convert binary integer to decimal, start from the left. Take your current total, multiply it by two and add the current digit. Continue until there are no more digits left.
