Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Excluding or including 0 as a natural number has their own merits, mathematicians say.. So there's really no standard answer to this. It just depends on the context of where you're using natural numbers. And yes please read @Wired's post above, he has a link explaining it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So as a summary; The whole world doesn't take 0 as a natural number though there are some exceptions. & Even if u give exam u should write 0 = natural no. otherwise u know what is the result LOL. @Ray951 k! my friend
