The set of whole numbers include the natural numbers and 0. Suppose we call this set W, then W = { 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,......}. Natural number, also called counting numbers, are 1, 2, 3, 4...
The number line below only shows whole numbers from 0 to 10.
However, not all numbers are shown!
50 is also a whole number.
Similarly, 2000 is also a whole number as the following figure shows.
1 cube: physical representation of 1 
1 long : physical representation of 10 Made of 10 cubes. 
1 flat : physical representation of 100 Made of 100 cubes. 
1 block: physical representation of 1000 Made of 1000 cubes.
