There are different schools of thought on this, but I maintain that whole numbers start with zero.

The number that is one less than 7000, that is, 7000 - 1.

The predecessor of 1 is 0. If you define "natural numbers" as starting at 1, then 1 has no predecessor. (Natural numbers can be defined either to include, or to exclude, zero.)

A smaller 3 digit number or a 2 digit number (99).

There is no whole number without a predecessor. According to Peano's axioms, the number natural 0 has no predecessor.

Yes it does.

a thing that has been followed or replaced by another: 2 is the predecessor of 3

So basically if your questions says 'What natural number has no predecessor ' it will be 1 because behind one is 0 which is a whole number but not a natural number .So the answer will be 1.

-1Another opinionIf this question in asking about so-called "absolute numbers" - which are numbers without any signs (+ or -) - then there is no whole number predecessor to zero.

Natural numbers, which were around before the concept of negative numbers

The number that is one less than 7000, that is, 7000 - 1.

No. 1 does not have a predecessor: 0 is not a natural number.

Predecessor of a number is obtained by subtracting 1 from it. The smallest 4 digit number is 1000 and its predecessor is 1000 - 1 = 999.

The predecessor is like saying, one less than that number.
