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.

Apart from poor spelling, this question is based on a fallacy. Counting numbers and whole numbers are NOT the same. For example, -3 is a whole number but it is not a counting number.

You don't "count with fractions". Counting is done with natural numbers.

Counting numbers are a proper subset of whole numbers which are the same as integers which are a proper subset of rational numbers.

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.

Curiously enough, yes.For each non-zero counting number, N, there are two whole numbers, -N and N. And then there is zero. So the number of whole numbers is approximately double the number of counting numbers. However, the count of such numbers - the cardinality of both of the two sets - is "countably infinite" and the property of this infinite value is that multiplying it by any number still gives the same infinity!

No. Counting numbers are whole numbers.

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".

The set of counting numbers is a proper subset of the whole number. The latter includes negative counting numbers. Also, there is no consensus as to whether 0 belongs to counting numbers or whole numbers.

Yes all counting numbers are whole numbers, but the reverse is not true (zero!)
