No, a whole number can be negative (or zero).

(Every counting number) plus (a zero tacked on to the end of it) is one of them.

There are 8. Also, by definition factors must be whole numbers because otherwise every non-zero number is a factor of every number (including prime numbers).

No. Zero is neither positive nor negative, by definition. A positive number is greater than zero. A negative number is less than zero. Although, zero is a non-negative number (a set that includes all positive numbers and zero).

0 is a whole, integer, and rational number. O is whole number because a whole number is every positive number

Yes. Every integer is a factor of zero. Zero is in fact the only number that can be divided by zero, so zero is also a factor. Zero has an infinite number of factors.

No. Zero is a natural number but it is not positive. However, all other natural numbers are positive.

No, a whole number can be negative (or zero).

The factor is 1.

No because factors are whole numbers but every whole number except zero has 1 as a factor.

No. Every non-zero whole number is a multiple of 1.

it is not a factor becuase um......(what is think im just 10) 0 times 0 is nothing so take nothing and put it here.........................nothing(so 0)is not a factor becuse there has to be a number 1 and up becuase nothing is 0 so 0 is nothing hehehe

1 times a number equals itself. The number is the first on the list of multiples.

No number exists. ============ Zero is not a factor of any number but zero.

A positive numbe is a number above zero and a negative number is a number below zero.

When a positive number is subtracted from zero the result is a negative number.

In math, a positive is a number greater then zero, and a negative number is less than zero.
