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.
Problem: body temperature; money owed; home runs

Study these sites  and then take a shot at your problem. We'll be glad to check your thinking.

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? 
I agree with you, David.
