Difference Between Natural and Whole numbers

The numbers 0, 1, 2, . . . . . , N all are called Whole Numbers i.e. if 0 is included in natural numbers, then it is known as Whole Numbers. Whole numbers are located at the right side of the number line. Zero is the smallest whole number. Also, Negative numbers are not whole numbers. For example = 0, 13, 22, 290, 19, 34, 95 all are whole numbers.

The numbers 1, 2, . . . . , N all are called Natural Numbers. 0 and Negative numbers are not natural numbers. 1 is the smallest natural number. For example 34, 22, 2, 81, 134, 15 all are Natural Numbers.

Example 1: Find whole numbers from the given numbers. 13, 0, 5, 89, 4, -4, -3, 23

Sol: Whole Numbers = 13, 0, 5, 89, 4, 23

Example 2: Find whole numbers from 4, 14/5, 0, (0.97), 2, -6, -17, 21

Sol: Whole Numbers = 4, 0, 2, 21.

Example 3: From the given series of numbers, find natural numbers. 41, (0.4), 5, 90, -91, 0, -7.

Sol: Natural Numbers = 41, 5, 90.

Example 4: From the given series of numbers, find natural numbers. 4, 4/15, 0, (0.87), 2, -7, -17, 21.

Sol: Natural Numbers = 4, 2, 21.
