Integer: Negative numbers, zero, positive numbers. NO fractions/decimals Natural: Positive numbers. NO zero, negative numbers, fractions/decimals. Whole number: Positive numbers, zero. NO negative numbers, fractions/decimals. Therefore, a natural, rational, whole integer, would be: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, ...

Rational -1.(3 repeating) Any repeating decimals are rational. However, a number such as pi (3.141592654...) does not repeat or end.

Any whole number, any number with a finite number of decimals, and some numbers with an infinite number of decimals, are rational.

All terminating decimals are rational.
