{0,1,2,3,..........} is called the set of Whole Numbers and is denoted by 'W'.
Properties of Whole Numbers in AdditionFor any two whole numbers "a" and "b" their sum (a+b) is also a natural number. This is called the closure property of addition for whole numbers.
Commutative Property:
Associative Property:
Additive identity: Properties of Whole Numbers in MultiplicationFor any two whole numbers a and b their product a*b is also a whole number. This property is called the closure property of multiplication for whole number. Commutative Property: For any two whole numbers a, b a*b =b*a. This is called the commutative property of multiplication in whole numbers.
Associative property:
