They are not. Counting numbers are a proper subset of whole numbers. Negative integers (-1, -2, -3 etc) are whole numbers but they are not counting numbers.

Apart from poor spelling, this question is based on a fallacy. Counting numbers and whole numbers are NOT the same. For example, -3 is a whole number but it is not a counting number.

You do the same way as with whole numbers.

no whole #'s include 0 and counting #'s don't include 0

Counting numbers are a proper subset of whole numbers which are the same as integers which are a proper subset of rational numbers.

Natural numbers are the same as counting numbers, but the term positive numbers means something else. Natural or counting numbers are positive integers, but the category of positive numbers includes both integers and fractions, as long as they are greater than zero.

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!

The same way you calculate averages with whole numbers: Add up all the fractions and divide by the number of fractions there are.

There are no whole numbers that are not also counting numbers. Both terms mean the same subset of numbers: positive integers greater than zero. Some people consider zero to be a whole number but not a counting number, because you can't "count" zero.

First you add the fractions then add the whole numbers I'd you can you can reduce the fractions bye multiplying Hope you have fun!😺🐆💙💎💖🐾

Mixed Fractions are fractions that have whole numbers and fractions on the side.If you are trying to change them into improper fractions you take the denominator of the fraction and multiply it by the whole number and keep the same numerator. ex.: 2 and one fourth =

C. whole numbers can be negative and don't match the other sets

Equivalent fractions represents the same portion of a whole and are the same fraction.

Counting numbers are positive integers 1, 2, 3 and so on. There is some disagreement whether natural numbers are the same thing or whether they include zero like whole numbers.

first you divide the numerator by whatever number and the denominator by the same number and that is your answer.

First you have to compare the whole numbers. When the whole numbers are the same, compare the fractions. If the denominators of the fraction are the same, compare the numerators. If the denominators are different, convert them to have the least common denominators. Then compare the numerators.

Whole numbers are rational numbers with a denominator of 1. The difference with general rational numbers is that the denominators are likely to be different and they must be made the same by converting the fractions into equivalent fractions with the same denominator before the addition can be done - by adding the numerators and keeping the denominator, and simplifying (if possible) the result. With whole numbers the denominators are already the same (as 1) and so the addition can be done straight away.

You multiply the denominator by the whole number the add the numerator and you keep the denominator the same.

No. 8mm can be written as 8.0mm For decimal numbers the numbers on the left hand side of the decimal point are whole numbers and the numbers on the right hand side of the decimal point are parts of numbers, fractions. 0.8 is not a whole number. 8.0 is a whole number so .8 and 8. are not the same

A whole number
