Integers, whole numbers, counting/natural numbers

#### Explanation:

Integers can be negative or positive. They cannot be decimals/fractions/percentages.

Examples of integers:

$- 3 , 4 , 56 , - 79 , 82 , 0$

Whole numbers include 0, but they cannot be negative. They cannot be decimals/fractions/percentages.

Examples of whole numbers:

$3 , 4 , 56 , 79 , 82 , 0$

Counting/natural numbers are the order in which we count. They are positive whole numbers, but do not include zero (we do not count by saying 0, 1, 2, 3, etc.).

Examples of counting/natural numbers:

$1 , 2 , 3 , 4 , 5 , 6$
