How are they different from d?

Do you see the decimal points and the numbers after the decimal points?

That could be right.

However, you could say that problem d is the only one with a whole number answer. The others cannot be divided evenly.

4.8 is not a whole number. It is 4 plus eight-tenths of the next number.

On a number line, 4.8 is between 4 and 5.

In the problem 30/5 = 6, the answer is a whole number with nothing left over.
