The history of whole numbers is as old as the concept of counting itself, but the first written whole numbers appeared between 3100 and 3400 B.C. Prior to that time, whole numbers were written as tally marks, and there are records of tally marks denoting whole numbers that date back to 30,000 B.C.

To add whole numbers and fractions, the whole number must also be turned into a fraction to combine the two. For example, if the problem to be solved with 3/4 + 7, the 7 would become a fraction by representing it as 7/1. Any whole number can be easily turned into a fraction because it is divisible b
