The integers on the left side of zero (0) are called negative numbers, and are represented by a negative sign (−) placed before them, as in −5, −10, and −15.* The integers on the right side of 0 are called positive numbers. Examples include 5, 10, and 15. The positive integers are known as counting numbers or natural numbers. The positive integers and 0 are called whole numbers. Zero is an integer but it is neither positive nor negative.
