Natural numbers - 1,2,3,4,5….

Irrational numbers - Those numbers can’t be represented as rational numbers.

Integers - ….-3,-2,-1,0,1,2,3….

Natural Numbers 

Natural numbers are all numbers starting from 1 till infinity. These numbers are positive and lie on the right-hand side of the number line. Natural numbers are 1,2,3,4,5,6,.........infinity.
