## Related Questions Counting numbers start at 1; whole numbers include zero. 1to9 are counting numbers Counting numbers are positive whole numbers and not zero. They can also be called 'natural numbers'. They are so called because when you count, you start at +1, then +2, +3 and continue on in this... That would be zero, and negative integers. "Counting numbers" refers to integers (whole numbers) that are positive (larger than zero). Yes all counting numbers are whole numbers, but the reverse is not true (zero!) Yes it is No. Negative numbers are not counting numbers. Nor is zero. Traditionally, counting numbers start from 1.  The counting numbers are the whole numbers that start at 1 and end at infinity. Although zero is considered a whole number, it is not a counting number. No- not exactly. Negative integers are not counting numbers. Positive integers are identified with counting numbers. Many authors like to start with zero as a counting number. No. Counting numbers are greater than zero.  No. Whole numbers are counting numbers and zero.  Yes, whole numbers are counting numbers.The term whole number does not have a consistent definition.Well the most used definition is "counting numbers along with zero". The sum of the first 1,000 counting numbers (which excludes zero) is 500,001. The sum of the first 50 counting numbers, excluding zero, is 1,251.  There are no whole numbers that are not also counting numbers. Both terms mean the same subset of numbers: positive integers greater than zero. Some people consider zero to be a whole number but not a counting number, because you can't "count" zero. Whole Numbers are simply the numbers 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, &hellip;(and so on)Counting Numbers are Whole Numbers, but without the zero. Because you can't "count" zero. Counting numbers are whole numbers except for zero.Example: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5... and so onNote: Zero is sometimes included, but you really cannot count zero so the standard definition excludes it. Integers are the "counting numbers" and their negative counterparts, and zero. Opposite integers are the pairs of integers that have the same absolute value, or, in other words, are the same distance from zero. 10 and -10 are opposite integers. 43 and -43 are opposite integers. It's just that simple. The set of Whole numbers includes the set of counting numbers and Zero. "Counting numbers" are specifically restricted to positive numbers - sometimes including zero. Whole numbers include negative whole numbers. Zero is a number which is said to mean nothing.The only time it has a value is when it follows a counting number or when it comes before the counting numbers in a decimal. A counting number is one you would use normally, as in 1,2,3,4,5... not including zero. A whole number includes zero, but is not a negative integer. ###### Numbers Math and ArithmeticPrime Numbers Copyright © 2020 Multiply Media, LLC. All Rights Reserved.
