Yes, EXCEPT for the number 0. It is a whole number but is not positive or negative.

Real Numbers - Everything

I. Rational Numbers- Any number except for non terminating decimals

A. Integers- Any negative or positive number...not a decimal1. Whole Numbers- Any positive integer INCLUDING ZEROa. Natural Numbers- Any positive integer (NOT INCLUDING ZERO)

The answer is not entirely correct, Whole numbers are numbers without a fractional part or decimal point.

Therefore whole numbers can be negative as well as positive. -2 is a whole number but is not positive.

There are a number of different interpretations for whole numbers, from non-negative integers, positive integers and all integers (which includes negative integers)
