    \[-8, \ - \frac { 2 }{ 5 }, 0, 0.4, \sqrt{5}, \sqrt{49}\]

    Look at the equation, not the question I typed out

    Natural numbers are the counting numbers. Pretend you are counting on your fingers. Which of these numbers are counting numbers?

    So would this be my answer: \[-8, 0, 0.4, \sqrt{5}, \sqrt{49}\] in that correct order?

    You can't count -8 on your fingers, or 0.4, etc. Imagine you've got a basket of apples and you're counting them. Those numbers are the natural numbers. {1, 2, 3, ...}

    So my natural numbers would be this answer then perhaps right? \[0, \sqrt{5}, \sqrt{49}\]

    Unfortunately, there is no agreement as to whether zero is a natural number, but my experience has been that it is normally included as well.

    Can you hold up \(\sqrt{5}\) fingers?

    Oh so those are imaginary numbers right?

    No. Imaginary numbers are something else. \(\sqrt{5}\) is what's called an irrational number. So what's your final answer?

    So my only real natural number could be \[0\]. Because it cant be a fracton either correct?

    Well. Do you what \(\sqrt{49}\) equals?

    Right. So is that a natural number?

    Yes it is. So my natural numbers are: \[0, \sqrt{49}\]?

    Correct. Well done. The set of natural numbers doesn't have any fractions, or decimals, or negative number. Just counting numbers.
