0.84 cannot be expressed as a whole number.

This did NOT help. Your probobly from a different school so your learning different. I'M IN DIVISON FOR TWO TOPICS.  Hectictar try doing division and you might see (mabey not). And I think it might be 84. And this is NOT an answer.

What does your teacher say is a "whole number" ?

I am pretty sure that 0.84 is not a whole number!

0.84  ≠  84

It can be written as a fraction, though.

This thread is a minor example of what a fifth-grader looks like when mommy uses him as a marionette.   Here, mommy manipulates his mouth and speaks in the dimwit dialect of stupid. This is a common language for many, but it’s very difficult to understand and translate into an educational language—such as Standard English.    The irony here is this is incomprehensible unless one grows up with it, and if one grows up with it, it’s very difficult to learn how to translate it.

Using a Babble translator and my genetically enhanced Chimp brain—with mind reading skills, I have determined a probable translation:

How do you round off fractional numbers to the nearest whole number?

Specifically, how do you round off 0.84 to the nearest whole number?

I believe GA has hit on the correct interpretation.....

0.84   rounds to  1

I'd like to take full credit for this.....but....I actually had to verify it with one of GA's trained chimps.....they're rarely wrong......particularly after a few banana daiquiris......

Well, Mr. BB, Bananas are brain food. Didn’t you know?

"Dis-moi ce que tu manges, je te dirai ce que tu es."

(Tell me what you eat and I will tell you what you are).

In your case, it’s easy to tell that your dietary staples consist mainly of idiot sandwiches, pork butt-roast, meatballs, and fruitcake.

Tell me, Mr. BB, What is your favorite drink?

I know several banker and Wall Street types – not enough to do a true statistic, but most of the older ones drink Scotch (usually single malt), or well-aged bourbons.   So what is it for you? I mean what was it back when you could chose something other than bathtub gin?
