Any negative whole number is not a natural number - so it is not "the only".

'0' is the only whole number that is not a counting number. Negative integers do not belong to whole numbers.

0 is the only number which is in the set of whole number but not in the natural number

only one whole number is not a natural number and it is 0

Depending on your definition of a natural number, 0 may or may not be a natural number. If you don't think 0 is a natural number, then it will be the only non-natural number that is whole.

There is no such number.

There is no such number.

No, there are none.

The only non-natural whole number is 0.

No natural numbers are the counting numbers only 1,2,3,4,5...

No, there are infinitely many: all the natural numbers.

No - whole numbers only, no negatives, no fractions

A natural number is a whole number that's bigger than 0. So 3, 17 and 123343 are both but -17, 0 and -188772 are whole numbers only.

whole numbers are 0,1,2,3,4,5,6 etc. and natural numbers are 1,2,3,4,5,6 etc. so the only difference is that in natural numbers there is no 0

ANSWER: 1 is the only counting number that is not prime nor composite.

"Natural number" means all of the ordinary counting numbers ... everywhole number starting with ' 1 ' and counting up.Every one of these natural numbers has two square roots ... one positiveand one negative. Both square roots have the same digits, and only theirsigns are different.

No, because only positive can be natural which are also whole Hopefully that made sense :)

This is a bit arbitrary. Mathematicians and educators have agreed that counting numbers are to be whole numbers only. There has to be some consistent use for phrases like "counting number", or we would have complete confusion.

Zero (0) is in the set of whole number. The only difference between the set of whole numbers and counting numbers is that the whole numbers contain zero. {0,1,2,3...}

A natural number can be thought of as a 'counting number' ie 0 1 2 3 4.... off to infinity. They also have to be whole, so for instance 1.5 isn't a natural number. Prime number are ones which can only be divided by 1 and itself. For example 7 as it can only be divided wholly by 1 and 7. 8 isn't a prime number as it can be divided by 1,2,4 and 8. Always bear in mind that by convention, 0 and 1 are not considered prime number.

No, only positive integers are considered counting numbers.

If you allow decimals and fractions, there's no answer. If you're only interested in whole numbers ... the "counting " numbers ... then it's 136101522.

All natural numbers (counting numbers) greater than one are either prime or composite. If divisible by only one and the number itself, it is prime; if divisible by other natural numbers, then is composite. One is the only natural number that is neither prime nor composite.

I think not . Only whole , natural , integers , and real number are real .
