NATURAL NUMBER

__NATURAL NUMBERS __

**So far we know that
Mathematics is all about numbers and the numbers are indispensable for
Mathematics. In the first stage of learning, we can that, mathematics starts with the counting of
objects. This is supposed to be done by using numbers such as 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9
……………….,and continue.**

**Above counting
numbers are called natural numbers and it is denoted as ‘N’. The collection of
all counting numbers will be considered as the set of all natural numbers. **

**Thus, N = 1, 2,
3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15………………,and so on. The dots ‘.’
In the end indicates the process of counting is endless and as such, there is no
end to natural numbers. We can say that, the smallest natural number is 1 (one) and there is no
largest natural numbers.**
