Worksheet Overview

Natural numbers are positive numbers from 1 to infinity. They do not include the number zero or any negative numbers, fractions or parts of numbers.

They are sometimes called counting numbers:

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6  are all natural numbers, as are 27, 435 1,000,000 etc.



Whole numbers are counting numbers but also include zero:
