Classifying Numbers
NATURAL NUMBERS: The set of natural numbers consists of the numbers that you use to count objects.
(1, 2, 3, 4, 5, …)
WHOLE NUMBERS: The set of whole numbers consists of the set of natural numbers and the number 0. (0, 1, 2, 3, 4, …)
INTEGERS: The set of integers consists of the set of whole numbers and their opposites. (…,-3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3, …)
RATIONAL NUMBERS: The set of rational numbers consists of all numbers that can be written as
a
, where a and b are

integers, but b is not equal to 0. Examples:  
IRRATIONAL NUMBERS: The set of irrational numbers consists of all numbers that cannot be written as
a
, where a and
b
b are integers. Examples:  , 7, 15 , 1.487299031…
REAL NUMBERS: The set of real numbers consists of the set of rational numbers and irrational numbers.
