Nothing, except whole numbers include 0 (zero) while counting numbers start with 1 (one)

If a timer is counting down from 30, it doesn't actually count 30. It starts counting at 29. If you are counting up to 10, you wouldn't count the number that you are counting from. If you counted 0, you would actually be counting 11 numbers.

zero is not a counting number. if you count the number of kids in a room, would you start with the number 0?

They are not. 0 (which is a whole number) is not considered a counting number(natural #).

A counting number is the numbers you lear as a little kid, counting numbers are one and up. Integers include the counting numbers, 0, and the opposite (negative) of counting numbers. So yes, a counting number or the opposite of a counting number is an integer.

0x10=10 because your counting 10 0 times

It is equal to ten because we normally use the decimal system for counting. This means that the right most digit is the number of units, the one to the left of it is the number of tens, the one to the left of that is the number of hundreds (102) and so on. So the given number is 0*103 + 0*102 + 1*101 + 0 = 0 + 0 + 10 + 0 = 10

In base 8 there are 8 digits (0 to 7 inclusive) and each digit in a number is a multiple of a power of 8. I'm not sure if you are including 0 as a counting number so here is 0 to 10 (with base 10 (decimal) on the left, base 8 on the right). 0 = 0 1 = 1 2 = 2 3 = 3 4 = 4 5 = 5 6 = 6 7 = 7 8 = 10 9 = 11 10 = 12

As we know that natural number are generally counting number.So "0" is not natural number.
