Numbers are used for calculating and counting.
These counting numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, .......... are called natural numbers.
In order to describe the number of elements in a collection with no objects, we use the symbol ‘0’ called zero.
The number ‘0’ together with the natural numbers gives us the numbers 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, …………… which are called whole numbers.

In order to represent any numbers, we use ten symbols 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9. These ten symbols are called digits or figures.
A group of digits denoting a number is called a numeral.
For example, 1237, 70156, 100758 etc. are numerals.`
