User: What is a integer?

Weegy: Were you wanting a definition of the word integer? The integers (from the Latin integer, literally "untouched", hence "whole": the word entire comes from the same origin, but via French[1]) are natural numbers including 0 (0, 1, 2, 3, [ ...) and their negatives (0, -1, -2, -3, ...). They are numbers that can be written without a fractional or decimal component, and fall within the set {... -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, ...}. For example, 65, 7, and -756 are integers; 1.6 and 1? are not integers. In other terms, integers are the numbers one can count with items such as apples or fingers, and their negatives, as well as 0. More formally, the integers are the only integral domain whose positive elements are well-ordered, and in which order is preserved by addition.[citation needed] Like the natural numbers, the integers form a countably infinite set. The set of all integers is often denoted by a boldface Z (or blackboard bold \mathbb{Z}, Unicode U+2124 Z), which stands for Zahlen (German for numbers, pronounced ['tsa?l?n]).[2] ]

User: What is a Whole number?

Weegy: The term whole number is one you?ll find often in mathematics. You may also see the term integer or natural number used in the same manner. Essentially the definition of a whole number is based around what it doesn?t contain. [ A whole number can?t be a fraction of a number, a percentage, or have a decimal. If you have a number like 21.32, it has a whole number portion (21). But in itself, this number is not a whole number because it contains a fraction (.32). ]
