Every whole number is rational and an integer. But the "natural" numbers are defined
as the counting numbers, so the negative whole numbers wouldn't qualify.

No and yes: it is not a natural number but it is a rational number.

Why every irrational number is also a rational number but not every rational number is a natural number?

Every irrational number is NOT a rational number. For example, sqrt(2) is irrational but not rational. A natural number is a counting number or a whole number, such as 1, 2, 3, etc. A rational number is one that can be expressed as a ratio of two whole numbers, which may be positive or negative. So, -2 is a rational number but not a counting number (it is an integer, though). Also, 2/3 is a rational number but not a whole, counting number or a natural number.
