The given number is 10999.

The first next natural number to 10999 is given by 10999+1.

So, the first natural number is 11000.

The second next natural number to 10999 is given by 10999+2.

So, the second continuous natural number is 11001.

Now, the third next natural number to 10999 is given by 10999+3.

So, the third continuous natural number is 11002.

Thus, the next three natural numbers after 10999 are 11000, 11001 and 11002.

Predecessor and Successor : Successor concept is similar to finding the next natural number to the given number. If we have to calculate the successor of a number x then we have to simply increase x by 1 that is x+1 which is the successor of x. The predecessor of the number x is calculated by subtracting 1 from the number x, that is the predecessor of x is x-1. Sometimes we may be asked to find the next two or three even or odd numbers after the given number x. If the given number x is even then the first next even number is given by x+2 and the second even number is given by x+4. And the first next odd number is given by x+1 and the second next odd number is given by x+3.

Similarly, if the given number is odd then the next odd number is given by x+2 and the next even number is given by x+1.
