    Properties of whole numbers

    Identify the property of whole numbers illustrated in each of the following:

    4 5 is a whole number

    I'm confused on how to answer this one. I got all of the others. Can anyone help?

    the set of whole numbers is closed under the operation of multiplication, i.e.

    (one whole number) times (another whole number) = a whole number
