Answer:Natural numbers are all numbers 1, 2, 3, 4… They are the numbers you usually count and they will continue on into infinity.Whole numbers are all natural numbers including 0 e.g. 0, 1, 2, 3, 4…Integers include all whole numbers and their negative counterpart e.g. …-4, -3, -2, -1, 0,1, 2, 3, 4,…All integers belong to the rational numbers. A rational number is a numberab,b≠0Where a and b are both integers.Step-by-step explanation:The number 4 is an integer as well as a rational number. As it can be written without a decimal component it belongs to the integers. It is a rational number because it can be written as:

41

or

82

or even

−8−2

Whereas

15=0.2

is a rational number but not an integer.

A rational number written in a decimal form can either be terminating as in:

15=0.2

Or repeating as in

56=0.83333…

All rational numbers belong to the real numbers.

If you look at a numeral line

You notice that all integers, as well as all rational numbers, are at a specific distance from 0. This distance between a number x and 0 is called a number’s absolute value. It is shown with the symbol

|x|

If two numbers are at the same distance from 0 as in the case of 10 and -10 they are called opposites. Opposites have the same absolute value since they are both at the same distance from 0.

|10|=10=|−10|
