Not necessarily. The difference between a = 7 & b = 7 is 0, and that is not a natural number.
Yes, the difference between two integers is always a whole number.
No. The difference can be a negative integer which is not a natural number.
natural numbers can not be negative. integers can be both positive and negative.
All negative integers are whole numbers but not natural numbers. Mathematicians are not agreed about whether 0 is a natural number or not.
All natural numbers are integers, not all integers are natural numbers.
Negative numbers are not natural, but there are negative integers. Examples are -1,-2,-3,-4, and so on. These are all integers but none of them is a natural number.
No. Natural numbers are the non-negative integers.
No, 4/3 is 1.333333... which is not a natural number. However, any natural number divided by a natural number will always be a rational number. This is due to the definition of a rational number as being able to be expressed as p/q where p and q are integers. Thus, numbers where p and q are natural numbers represent a subset of all the rational numbers.
Difference of two natural numbers is not always a natural number.For any two natural numbers a and b, a-b = natural number only when a>b.Otherwise the result is a integer.No, e.g. 6 - 10 = -4. -4 is negative, so it is not a natural number.
No. Natural numbers are integers, no decimals, no fractions.
It depends on what you consider a natural number. If you consider it to be the set of all integers starting from 1 and going upward, then no, 0 is not a natural number.However, if you consider a natural number to be the set of all non-negative integers, then 0 is included in the set of natural numbers.
an integer is a negative number and a positive number. It is all the numbers, just like a natural number is all the numbers from 1 and up
Zero is not a natural number because the definition of a natural number is the set of positive integers that does not contain zero.
Negative integers. Some would also include 0.
No. If the two numbers are integers, then on average, only about half the number of times.For example, the difference between 1 and 4 is 3.
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.
They are both whole numbers (integers) and natural numbers.All natural numbers are integers, but integers is a larger group of numbers.The group consists of the natural numbers, zero and the whole negative numbers (e.g. '-4' and '-560').
A natural number is always a rational number .
The set of negative integers.
No. Natural numbers are 0 and positive integers.
All integers are whole numbers. The natural numbers are zero and the positive integers. Thus, any negative integer (-1, -2, -3, etc.) is whole but not "natural."
No. Example: The difference of 2/5 & 1/3: 2/5 - 1/3 = 1/15 ∈ ℚ (is a rational number) ∉ ℕ (is not a natural number).
