The set of natural numbers is
blank. Infinite or finite.
Natural numbers are known as the
counting numbers. The numbers that we have learned in
kindergarten. And when we begin to count things,
we usually count objects or pictures of something. And when we count, we’ll begin at
the number one. And then, after one comes two, then
three, then four, five, and so on.
Now, the “so on” part is important
because the “so on” part is saying that these numbers keep going. So we keep counting until we can’t
count anymore. And it’s not because they aren’t
numbers, but because maybe someone hasn’t learn that yet.
So does that make the natural
numbers infinite or finite? An infinite set of something goes
on forever, never stops. A finite set will stop. We’ll have a certain number of
elements in it.
So since the natural numbers keep
going and does not stop, it goes on forever, the set of natural numbers would then
