here the number -5 is all of the following except a rational number.
except a rational number. : )
a real number
you technically can't have negative of anything in real life so that makes -5 not a real number.
so i really think it is not a real number
The correct answer is A. A whole number
In mathematics, whole numbers include numbers that do not include a fraction, for example, the number 4.2 includes a fraction, and therefore it is not a whole number. Moreover, whole numbers include numbers from 0 to infinity but not negative numbers. This means the number -5 is not a whole number because even then this does not include a fraction it is a negative number. According to this, this number is an integer (it does not include fractions), a rational number (it can be expressed as a fraction), and a real number (it can be represented in a line), but not a whole number.
