I have some understanding of this but not quite sure how to do the problem. Direction & problem below.
Direction: Tell whether whole numbers, integers, or rational numbers are the most reasonable to describe each. Explain your answer.

So, I'm thinking based on the sites you given that...
body temperature = rational number
money owed = rational number
home runs = whole numbers
Is this correct?
