# Are natural numbers and positive numbers the same?

Natural Numbers:

- The most basic and the first numbers that were used by man were the Counting Numbers.
- These counting numbers from the set of Natural numbers.
- Natural numbers $=$ {1, 2, 3, 4, 5.....}

Positive numbers :

- Positive numbers are located to the right of zero on the number line.
- Positive numbers can also include positive rational numbers like $\frac{2}{5},\frac{7}{2}$, etc whereas natural numbers do not have fractions or decimals.

**Therefore, the positive Integers are the same as Natural numbers but not all positive numbers are Natural numbers. **
