Numbers play an important role in our life. We use numbers in our day to day life to count things.

While counting we use numbers to represent any quantity, to measure any distance or length.

The counting numbers starting from 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, ……… are termed as  natural numbers.

The set of counting numbers and zero are known as whole numbers.

Whole numbers are 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7,…….. and so on.

Question: Write the next three natural numbers after 10999.

Solution:

10999 + 1 = 11000

11000 + 1= 11001

11001 + 2 = 11002

Thus, 11000, 11001, 11002 are the next three natural numbers after 10999
