hint: a rational number is a ratio between two integer numbers, say m, and n, and n is different from zero. Now if m and n have the same sign and m is a multiple of n, namely m= k*n where k is a natural number, then the we can write: $\Large \frac{m}{n} = \frac{{kn}}{n} = k$

Examples of rational numbers are: .9999, 1, 0, 7050.52, $1/4$ etc... Examples of natural numbers are 0, 1, 2, 3, 4. So is 1 always a rational and natural number? Yes. Is .9994 always a rational and natural? No. Therefore, rational numbers are (insert answer) natural numbers.
