Whole numbers are numbers from 0 to infinity. They must be numbers that are not fractions or decimals, and must be positive. Integers can be any numbers that are whole, negative or positive. Zero is not a positive number. Neither is it negative. Rational numbers are an fraction. Eg: 6/10 or 6/6 They can also be whole numbers because 6/6 is also 1. Counting numbers are also numbers 1-infinity, but once again, it is all whole numbers, meaning that they are not decimals or some thing like: .1 or 1/2
