Hello sir

Sir if natural number and whole no are same then we can use natural no or whole no any one why we use both nos in no. system and if they are same why they are made different.

Hi Aishwarya,

Natural numbers are the numbers we use for counting: 1, 2, 3, ... (0 may or may not be included depending on the school of thought).

Integers include 0 and negative numbers: ..., -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, ...

I assume by "whole number" you mean "integer". If this is not the case, ask a follow-up and define "whole number."

Regards,

Azeem
