    Natural numbers are positive numbers that start from 1.

    About half of math literature consider it as a natural number, and about half consider it as not..

    My textbook in discrete mathematics, for example, includes 0 as a natural number.Although personally, I don't haha.

    Natural Numbers are the counting numbers, the number we use when we are counting.. Whole Numbers are the Natural Numbers including 0 in it...

    Excluding 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.

    So 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

    0 is a natural number because it is a real number.
