Q2: What are the Natural Numbers and Whole Numbers Properties?
A2: The various properties of Natural numbers and Whole numbers are as follows:
Eg: 34+145 = 179
Eg: 6+10= 16
The subtraction of two natural numbers may or may not result in a natural number.
Eg: 5 –12 = -9 is not natural number
But 11– 5 = 6 is a natural number
The subtraction of two whole numbers may or may not result in a whole number.
Multiplication of two natural numbers always results in a natural number
Eg: 12 X 6 = 72 is a natural number
Multiplication of two whole numbers always results in a whole number
Ex: 14 X 0 = is a whole number, where 4 and 0 are also whole numbers.
Division of two natural numbers may always not always result in a natural number.
Division of two whole numbers may always not always result in a whole number.
This is because if the result is in fraction or decimal, then they are not considered as natural or whole numbers.
Eg: 4/2 = 2 is natural as well as the whole number.
But 5/2 = 2.5 is neither natural nor the whole number.
