if the opposite you are saying is the inverse, then the answer is no.

What exactly do you mean when you say "the opposite of a whole number" . . .

The set of whole numbers and their opposite is the same set.

They are a pair of opposite whole numbers. Except in the case of 0 whose additive opposite is itself and which does not have a mulitplicative opposite.

Apart from zero (which is its own opposite), the opposites of whole numbers are also whole numbers. You have the set of whole numbers which is also known as the set of integers.

A composite number is any whole number that isn't a prime number or 1. A prime number is a whole number that is only divisible by itself and 1.

the opposite of whole is a half

They are 0 which is its own additive opposite. 0 does not have a multiplicative opposite.

A whole number is called an integer. The opposite of a whole number is a negative integer. An example would be 4 and -4.

The answer depends on the context for opposition: the additive inverses are whole numbers but the multiplicative inverses are not (except in the case of -1 and +1).

The answer depends on where opposite! Even if you could spell correctly, the answer would depend on whether you meant the additive opposite or the multiplicative opposite.

They are bot whole numbers and, if not 0, they form a pair of additive inverses.

No, because an integer is a whole number and it's opposite (negative or positive). The square root of 80 is not a whole number.

Well to correct your grammar first of all so I can read the question more understandably, what is a whole number and its opposite. A whole number is a number greater than 0. The opposite of a whole number is a negative number. A negative number is a number below 0, like you see on thermometers when its really cold sometimes. Here is a very important thing that you need to know. If you don't know this you will get it wrong on a test. 0 is not a negative number or whole number. It is just known as a place holder on the number line.

An integer is just a whole number, excluding zero. Any positive integer will always have an opposite just by placing a negative sign in front of the positive integer. You can also say that any negative whole number is an integer.

A composite number is any whole number that isn't a prime number or 1. A prime number is a number that is only divisible itself and 1.

Apart from zero (which is its own opposite), the opposites of whole numbers are also whole numbers. You have the set of whole numbers which is also known as the set of integers.

In number Systems , the opposite of the number can be represented by changing and reversing the sign of the number.-2 is the number is the opposite of the number 2.

The question is based on a false premise: the opposite of a decimal is not a whole. A decimal is simply a way of representing a number is such a way that the place value of each digit is ten times that of the digit to its right. Therefore 4 is a decimal, 2.75 is a decimal. There are different ways of defining opposite. The additive opposites of the two numbers are -4 and -2.75 so one of them is a whole number, the other is not. The multiplicative opposites are 0.25 and 0.3636... so neither of them are whole.
