They are not. Counting numbers are a proper subset of whole numbers. Negative integers (-1, -2, -3 etc) are whole numbers but they are not counting numbers.

The counting numbers are the whole numbers that start at 1 and end at infinity. Although zero is considered a whole number, it is not a counting number.

The set of counting (natural) numbers is the set of all positive integers, while the set of whole numbers is the set of all positive integers included zero.

they are almost all equivalent - whole numbers also have the number 0, which natural numbers (counting numbers) do not.

no whole #'s include 0 and counting #'s don't include 0

All counting numbers ARE (not is!) a proper subset of the set of whole numbers.

All of the counting numbers are whole numbers. Counting numbers consist of 1, 2, 3, 4, etc. Whole numbers are numbers that have no fractional parts. Since none have fractional parts, they are all whole numbers.

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

No. 0 and negative integers are whole numbers but they are not counting numbers.

Whole numbers include the number 0 and counting numbers do not.

Counting numbers start at 1; whole numbers include zero.

No. Counting numbers are whole numbers.

-3 is a real, rational, whole integer. But then, -- All integers are real rational whole numbers. -- All whole numbers are real rational integers. -- All rational numbers are real. -- All counting numbers are real, rational, whole integers.

Yes, whole numbers are counting numbers.The term whole number does not have a consistent definition.Well the most used definition is "counting numbers along with zero".
