Whole number are a collection of positive numbers and zero. The whole number is represented as {0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 ….}.

Whole numbers can be used as:

Ordinal Numbers: Tell the order of things in a set—first, second, third, etc. Ordinal numbers do not show quantity. They only show time or space.
