## FAQs on What are Whole Numbers? Video Lecture - Mathematics (Maths) Class 6

 1. What are Whole Numbers?
Ans. Whole numbers are a set of numbers that include all the positive integers (numbers without fractional or decimal parts) and zero. In other words, whole numbers are the non-negative numbers, starting from zero and extending infinitely in the positive direction.
 2. How are Whole Numbers different from Natural Numbers?
Ans. While whole numbers include zero and all positive integers, natural numbers only consist of positive integers, excluding zero. In simple terms, natural numbers are a subset of whole numbers.
 3. Can negative numbers be considered as Whole Numbers?
Ans. No, negative numbers are not considered whole numbers. Whole numbers only include non-negative integers, meaning numbers that are greater than or equal to zero. Negative numbers fall under a separate category of numbers known as integers.
 4. Are fractions and decimals included in Whole Numbers?
Ans. No, fractions and decimals are not included in the set of whole numbers. Whole numbers are specifically integers without any fractional or decimal parts. Fractions and decimals are part of the set of real numbers, which is broader than the set of whole numbers.
 5. Can Whole Numbers be used for counting objects in real-life situations?
Ans. Yes, whole numbers can be used for counting objects. Since whole numbers include zero and positive integers, they can be used to count the number of objects in various real-life situations, such as counting the number of books on a shelf or the number of students in a class.
