Dear Cassie, ÃÂNaturalÃÂ numbers and ÃÂCountingÃÂ numbers are the same. However, ÃÂWholeÃÂ Numbers are not the same. Whole Numbers are all counting/natural numbers and also includes zero. For the Venn diagram, you would show counting/natural numbers as a circle within the circle of whole numbers. Hope this helps, Brennon, Shannan and Monique
