The numbers which include the positive counting numbers, the negative counting numbers, and 0 are called integers.

That is, the numbers such as …–3, –2, –1, 0, 1, 2, 3… are called integers.

Hope this helps!

Cheers!

## Integers

Integers are like whole numbers, but they also include negative numbers ... but still no fractions allowed!

So, integers can be negative {-1, -2,-3, -4, -5, … }, positive {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, … }, or zero {0}

We can put that all together like this:

Integers = { ..., -5, -4, -3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, ... }

## Whole Numbers

Whole Numbers are simply the numbers 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, … (and so on)

### No Fractions
