There is no whole number without a predecessor. According to Peano's axioms, the number natural 0 has no predecessor.
No. 1 does not have a predecessor: 0 is not a natural number.
Every integer has a predecessor and a succesor. If you mean NON-NEGATIVE whole numbers, the answer would be zero.
a thing that has been followed or replaced by another: 2 is the predecessor of 3
use MATHS plz
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.
-1Another opinionIf this question in asking about so-called "absolute numbers" - which are numbers without any signs (+ or -) - then there is no whole number predecessor to zero.
There are different schools of thought on this, but I maintain that whole numbers start with zero.
Natural numbers, which were around before the concept of negative numbers
The number that is one less than 7000, that is, 7000 - 1.
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.
The predecessor is like saying, one less than that number.
