Dear Cassie,
“Natural” numbers and “Counting” numbers are the same. However,
“Whole” 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
