The set of counting numbers is a proper subset of the whole number. The latter includes negative counting numbers. Also, there is no consensus as to whether 0 belongs to counting numbers or whole numbers.

Are there the same amount of numbers in counting numbers as whole numbers?

Curiously enough, yes.For each non-zero counting number, N, there are two whole numbers, -N and N. And then there is zero. So the number of whole numbers is approximately double the number of counting numbers. However, the count of such numbers - the cardinality of both of the two sets - is "countably infinite" and the property of this infinite value is that multiplying it by any number still gives the same infinity!


Is the set of whole numbers closed under subtraction?

It depends on your definition of whole numbers. The classic definition of whole numbers is the set of counting numbers and zero. In this case, the set of whole numbers is not closed under subtraction, because 3-6 = -3, and -3 is not a member of this set. However, if you use whole numbers as the set of all integers, then whole numbers would be closed under subtraction.
