Any natural number and 0

The first counting number is 1. There is some disagreement over the smallest natural number. It is either 0 or 1 so your answer is either 0 or 1.

Not everyone is agreed on this but Peano's axioms, which are the basis for the axiomatic structure of numbers defines 0 as a natural number and then all other natural numbers in terms of successors.0 is not a successor of any natural number.1 is the successor of 0 is 1 = S(0)2 = S(S(0))3 = S(S(S(0))) and so on.Accordingly, the first natural number is 0.
