    This is a whole number which can be written as a fraction.

    they way you have it written , 4/2 is a improper fraction, if you simplify , it is equivalent to a whole number

    A fraction is just some ratio, and in this case, we do have a ratio.

    That's like saying \(\rm \sqrt 4\) is irrational but it becomes rational after simplification.
