Counting numbers start at 1; whole numbers include zero.

They are not. Counting numbers are a proper subset of whole numbers. Negative integers (-1, -2, -3 etc) are whole numbers but they are not counting numbers.

The set of counting numbers is a proper subset of the whole number. The latter includes negative counting numbers. Also, there is no consensus as to whether 0 belongs to counting numbers or whole numbers.

All of the counting numbers are whole numbers. Counting numbers consist of 1, 2, 3, 4, etc. Whole numbers are numbers that have no fractional parts. Since none have fractional parts, they are all whole numbers.

Apart from poor spelling, this question is based on a fallacy. Counting numbers and whole numbers are NOT the same. For example, -3 is a whole number but it is not a counting number.

Yes all counting numbers are whole numbers, but the reverse is not true (zero!)

"Counting numbers" are specifically restricted to positive numbers - sometimes including zero. Whole numbers include negative whole numbers.

The counting numbers are the whole numbers that start at 1 and end at infinity. Although zero is considered a whole number, it is not a counting number.

Whole numbers are 1,2,3,4..etc frations decimals and other numbers arent. Whole numbers include 0, counting numbers do not. Counting Numbers are also sometimes referred to as Natural Numbers.

All counting numbers ARE (not is!) a proper subset of the set of whole numbers.

'0' is the only whole number that is not a counting number. Negative integers do not belong to whole numbers.

Yes, whole numbers are counting numbers.The term whole number does not have a consistent definition.Well the most used definition is "counting numbers along with zero".

Counting numbers are a proper subset of whole numbers which are the same as integers which are a proper subset of rational numbers.

No. Whole numbers are counting numbers and zero.
