The term whole number does not have a consistent definition. Various authors use it in one of the following senses (in order of most to least common usage):

  • the nonnegative integers (0, 1, 2, 3, ...)
  • the positive integers (1, 2, 3, ...) (often called natural numbers)
  • all integers (..., -3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3, ...).
