**WHOLE NUMBERS**

**What are Whole Numbers?**

In mathematics, whole numbers are the basic counting numbers 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, … and so on.

17, 99, 267, 8107 and 999999999 are examples of whole numbers.

**Natural Number**

A natural number is an integer greater than 0. Natural numbers begin at 1 and increment to infinity: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, etc.

Natural numbers are also called "counting numbers" because they are used for counting.

Whole numbers include natural numbers that begin from 1 onwards.

Whole numbers include positive integers along with 0.

**SUCCESSOR**

The number which comes immediately after a particular number is called its successor.

The successor of a whole number is the number obtained by adding 1 to it.

Clearly, the successor of 0 is 1; successor of 1 is 2; successor of 2 is 3 and so on.

**PREDECESSOR**

The number which comes just before a particular number is called its predecessor.

The predecessor of a whole number is one less than the given number.

Clearly, the predecessor of 1 is 0; predecessor of 2 is 1; predecessor of 3 is 2 and so on.

The whole number 0 does not have any predecessor.

We observe that every whole number, other than zero, has its predecessor.

Also, if a is the successor of b, then b is the predecessor of a.

**Question 1:****Write the next three whole numbers after 30999.****Answer : **The next three whole numbers after 30999 are 31000, 31001 and 31002.

Question 2:**Write the three whole numbers occurring just before 10001.****Answer :**

Three whole numbers occurring just before 10001 are as follows:

10001 − 1 = 10000

10000 − 1 = 9999 9999 − 1 = 9998

∴ The three whole numbers just before 10001 are 10000, 9999 and 9998.

Question 3: **How many whole numbers are there between 1032 and 1209?****Answer : **Number of whole numbers between 1032 and 1209 = (1209 − 1032) − 1 = 177 − 1 = 176

Question 4: **Which is the smallest whole number?****Answer : **0 (zero) is the smallest whole number. All the natural numbers along with 0 are called whole numbers.

Question 5: **Write the successor of: (i) 2540801 (ii) 9999 (iii) 50904 (iv) 61639 (v) 687890****Answer :**

(i)Successor of 2540801 = 2540801 + 1 = 2540802

(ii) Successor of 9999 = 9999 + 1 = 10000

(iii) Successor of 50904 = 50904 + 1 = 50905

(iv) Successor of 61639 = 61639 + 1 = 61640

(v) Successor of 687890 = 687890 + 1 = 687891

Question 6: **Write the predecessor of: (i) 97 (ii) 10000****(iii) 36900 (iv) 7684320 (v) 1566391****Answer :**

(i) Predecessor of 97 = 97 − 1 = 96

(ii) Predecessor of 10000 = 10000 − 1 = 9999

(iii) Predecessor of 36900 = 36900 − 1 = 36899

(iv) Predecessor of 7684320 = 7684320 − 1 = 7684319

(v) Predecessor of 1566391 = 1566391 − 1 = 1566390

Question 7: Write down three consecutive whole numbers just preceding 7510001.**Answer :**

The three consecutive whole numbers just preceding 7510001 are as follows:

7510001 − 1 = 7510000

7510000 − 1 = 7509999

7509999 − 1 = 7509998

∴ The three consecutive numbers just preceding 7510001 are 7510000, 7509999 and 7509998.
