Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok well just to quickly go over them: natural numbers are 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, they are positive and whole rationals are simply decimals or fractions that can be expressed as a fraction: aka they do not go on forever without repeating. so 2/3 or .6666666... or simple ones like 1/4 integers are + or  whole numbers

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no natural numbers are all the positive number without decimals and zero. Rational numbers are numbers that can be expressed in a ratio or quotient of natural numbers.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0right, i see the confusion when i said "without repeating" i meant, they must repeat if they go on forever

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Defining the REALs is tricky business. And requires Analysis to grasp. There are tiny holes between any two rationals numbers. These tiny holes are irrational numbers. Which can be said to be "nonterminanting without repeating decimals" as Kynosis put it. We have to patch up these holes to "COMPLETE" the REALS
