Answer

0

Work Step by Step

0 is a whole number that is not a natural number because the natural numbers start at 1 and go to infinity in whole number increments. Natural numbers are symbolized like this: N = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, ...} Whole numbers start at 0 and then proceed just like the natural numbers. 0 is the only whole number that is not also a natural number.
