-4 is a whole number......
That's what I thought. but I'm doing an exam correction sheet and thw question asks which nuber set does -4 not belong to? and the answer was "whole numer". I'm supposed to explain why it's not. so I'm confused.
huh.......well I even looked up what a whole number is and it said that a whole number is anything greater than or equal to one, without any decimals.....and that it can be positive or negative.
