    Not all integers are whole numbers. But All integers greater than or equal to 0 are whole numbers.

    Set of integers: {... -3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3, ...}

    Set of whole numbers: {0, 1, 2, 3, ...}

    But then again, it depends how one defines a "whole number." I've seen some sources define a whole number to include the negatives.
