Difference between Whole & Natural Numbers

Difference Whole Numbers & Integers Difference Whole & Natural Numbers Difference Integers, Whole & Natural Numbers

Before you study this difference, you are advice to read:

What are Whole Numbers ?
What are Natural Numbers ?

The numbers 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5,.... and so on..... all are called Whole Numbers and the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5,.... and so on..... all are called Natural Numbers.

Or we can also say that:
If digit Zero is included in the series of Natural Numbers, it becomes Whole Numbers
If digit Zero is excluded from the series of Whole Numbers, it become Natural Number

Main difference between Natural Number and Whole Number; is presence or absence of digit Zero

Let's further understand this with the help of following Number Line:
