Integers are whole numbers, fractions are part of a whole number.

Whole numbers consist of numbers such as 1,2,3,4,5... Integers are number consisting of decimals, such as 1.2, 2.2, 3.2, 4.2, and 5.2...

Counting numbers start at 1; whole numbers include zero.

None, because the set of integers and the set of whole numbers is the same.

Whole numbers are integers. Integers are whole numbers.

The set of counting (natural) numbers is the set of all positive integers, while the set of whole numbers is the set of all positive integers included zero.

Integers can be both positive and negative, while whole numbers are restricted to positive.

No. All whole numbers are integers and all integers are whole numbers.

Always. By definition the Integers are the whole numbers; and the whole numbers are the integers.

The only difference is that whole numbers include 0 (zero), while natural numbers start with 1 (one). That's it!

There is no difference because all integers or whole numbers are considered to be rational numbers.

Whole numbers are generally speaking numbers that are "whole" or without fractions and decimals. Generally they are considered to be the natural numbers (or counting numbers) plus zero. The set of whole numbers is {0, 1, 2, 3, ...}. Positive integers are numbers in the set of integers that are greater than zero. The integers {..., -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, ...}. The positive integers {1, 2, 3, ...}. So generally the only difference is whether or not zero is included. Note that there are arguably different sets that can be called whole numbers (such as without the zero, or even somewhat rarely all integers positive and negative).

Counting numbers are a proper subset of whole numbers which are the same as integers which are a proper subset of rational numbers.

All numbers from 1 to 100 which are whole numbers are integers

If you have drawn a number line counting in whole numbers, the integers are those whole number points. Any decimal numbers in between are not integers.

The group of integers consists of all whole numbers and their opposites. So, integers are... -2, -1, 0, 1, 2... However, 4/5, square root of 7, and Pi are all numbers, just not integers. All integers are numbers, but not all numbers are integers.

Integers are whole numbers, including negative whole numbers. The integers in the range -1.41 to 1.71 are -1, 0 and 1.

No, integers are whole numbers. Whole numbers are numbers that do not have a fraction or a decimal following them. 7 and 8 would be integers but anything in between is not.

The set of integers includes the set of whole numbers. The set of rational numbers includes the sets of whole numbers and integers.

Yes, the difference between two integers is always a whole number.

The term "whole number" is somewhat ambiguous. It MAY refer to integers; or it MAY refer only to non-negative integers ("counting numbers").

Whole numbers are the same as integers. Whole numbers are a proper subset of rational numbers.

Not all rational numbers are integers, but all integers are rational.
