    (1) is true sqrt(49)=7 is a ration number (2) pi is a real number. if it were pi*sqrt(-1) then is would be not real (3) natural numbers are counting numbers when you count you start with 1 not 0 so 0 is not a natural number (4) -17 is an integer just like 0 and 4 are (5) 3/2 is a rational since it is an integer/integer so 3/2 is not an integer (6) sqrt(3) is irrational because it goes on forever (7) 2 is a real number

    The term "natural number" refers either to a member of the set of positive integers 1, 2, 3, ... (Sloane's A000027) or to the set of nonnegative integers 0, 1, 2, 3, ... (Sloane's A001477; e.g., Bourbaki 1968, Halmos 1974). Regrettably, there seems to be no general agreement about whether to include 0 in the set of natural numbers. In fact, Ribenboim (1996) states "Let be a set of natural numbers; whenever convenient, it may be assumed that ."

    I learned that the natural numbers was also the counting set you do not start counting with 0 you start counting with 1 so 0 is not a natural

    conclusion to anyone who reads this noone gives a sh*t if 0 is included in the natural numbers or not, if you are anything except mathematician you will most likely be able to live without arguing about it. and we are all friends
