Choose the correct statements.
-1 is the smallest negative integer
0 is not an integer
Natural numbers, or counting numbers, are the set of numbers that start with 1 and goes on indefinitely. 1,2,3, and so on form the set of natural numbers. The smallest natural number is 1.
Whole numbers include the set of natural numbers along with 0. Thus, 0,1,2,3 and so on form the set of whole numbers. The smallest whole number is 0 and not 1.
Integers include the set of natural numbers, their negatives and 0. So, -1,-2,-3 and so on along with the whole numbers form the set of integers. -2 is lesser than -1, -3 is lesser than -2 and so on. Thus, -1 is the greatest negative integer, not the smallest one.
