A whole number belongs to the set of integers that are equal to or greater than zero. For example, the set of numbers {0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, ...} contains all of the whole numbers.

Examples of whole numbers include zero, one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, 10 and so forth. Whole numbers are all of the counting numbers, plus zero. These numbers are not fractional, decimals or negative.

The only difference between natural numbers and whole numbers is that a zero is included when mentioning whole numbers. Both natural and whole numbers are positive integers and, therefore, don't have any fraction or decimal part.

The history of whole numbers is as old as the concept of counting itself, but the first written whole numbers appeared between 3100 and 3400 B.C. Prior to that time, whole numbers were written as tally marks, and there are records of tally marks denoting whole numbers that date back to 30,000 B.C.

In math, zero is part of the set of whole numbers. The whole numbers include all of the natural numbers, or positive counting numbers, plus the number zero. The whole numbers do not include any of the negative numbers.

To add whole numbers and fractions, the whole number must also be turned into a fraction to combine the two. For example, if the problem to be solved with 3/4 + 7, the 7 would become a fraction by representing it as 7/1. Any whole number can be easily turned into a fraction because it is divisible b

To add fractions and whole numbers, convert a whole number into a fraction with the same denominator as the fraction that needs to be added. Add up the numerators and keep the denominator the same.

The smallest whole number is zero. The set of whole numbers includes all natural numbers and the number 0. There is not a largest whole number, as the set of whole numbers is infinite.

The product of two or more non-zero whole numbers is always a whole number itself. Whole numbers are integers like 0,1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6. A non-zero whole number follows the set of rules except that it cannot be zero. By multiplying any of these numbers together they, by definition, continue to be
