How are they different from d?
Do you see the decimal points and the numbers after the decimal points?

4th grade  dk, Thursday, January 13, 2011 at 6:19pm
YES because when i learn i now 4.8 mean is 5 they skip 4.8
4.5 is 5

4th grade  Ms. Sue, Thursday, January 13, 2011 at 6:21pm
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.

pleace explain me

4.8 is not a whole number. It is 4 plus eighttenths 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.
