whole numbers are the numbers that start from 0 (0,1,2,3,4.......) and natural numbers are the numbers that start from 1 (1,2,3,4,5......)

whole numbers include numbers from 0 to infinity whereas natural numbers are the numbers from 1 to infinity

Negative integers are whole numbers but not natural numbers. Mathematicians are undecided about zero. It is a whole number: some believe zero is a natural number, others do not.

Integers are all positive and negative whole numbers, and natural numbers are all positve whole numbers including zero. So, natural numbers is a subset of integers.

An integer is any whole number

No. Natural numbers are a subset of whole numbers. Negative numbers are whole numbers but not natural.

Since whole numbers are the same as integers, there are no different rules! The only way in which the rules for natural numbers is different is that the set does not contain the additional opposites of numbers (in other words, the set is not closed under subtraction).

All except zero.Yes, except for 0 itself

No. Negative integers are whole numbers but not natural.

No. Negative whole numbers are not natural numbers.

The different names for Numbers are defined as Natural numbers, whole numbers , real numbers, decimal numbers, integers, rational numbers and irrational numbers.

Yes, all natural numbers are whole numbers.
