Decimal fractions have denominators that are 10 or a power of 10. For example, the decimal 4.75 is not a whole number because it means four and 75/100. Since it is not a whole number, it is not an integer. However, decimals do belong to the set of rational numbers, which in addition to decimals also includes fractions and integers.
