There is no whole number without a predecessor. According to Peano's axioms, the number natural 0 has no predecessor.

Yes, the number zero. Currently, the natural numbers are normally taken to start with zero, not with one (this was not always so). The number zero has no predecessor in the set of natural numbers. In the set of integers, however, every number has a predecessor and a successor.

1

So basically if your questions says 'What natural number has no predecessor ' it will be 1 because behind one is 0 which is a whole number but not a natural number .So the answer will be 1.

The predecessor of 1 is 0. If you define "natural numbers" as starting at 1, then 1 has no predecessor. (Natural numbers can be defined either to include, or to exclude, zero.)

Yes it does.

Natural numbers, which were around before the concept of negative numbers

Predecessor of a number is obtained by subtracting 1 from it. The smallest 4 digit number is 1000 and its predecessor is 1000 - 1 = 999.

Successor is the number that comes just after a particular number is called its successor.Ex: Successor of 823 is 824 , Successor of 3424 is 3425Predecessor is the number that comes just before a particular number is called its predecessor.Ex: 999 is the predecessor of 1000, 2367 is the predecessor of 2368Some more Example on Successor areSuccessor of 589 is 5903724 is 37255099 is 51007009 is 70104836 is 48376149 is 6150Some more examples on predecessor are495 is predecessor of 496999 is predecessor of 10007054 is predecessor of 70556825 is predecessor of 68263209 is predecessor of 32109998 is predecessor of 9999

The predecessor is like saying, one less than that number.

No - the ONLY natural number which has a reciprocal which is also a natural number is "1". All the other reciprocals of natural numbers will be fractions that are less than 1.

It is 27720.
