Real numbers are classified as [[rational number]]s (denoted by '''Q'''), [[integer]]s ('''Z'''), [[whole number]]s ('''W'''), [[natural number]]s, and [[irrational number]]s. In order of inclusion, non-irrational real numbers can be ordered as follows:

Real numbers are classified as rational numbers (denoted by Q), integers (Z), whole numbers (W), natural numbers, and irrational numbers. In order of inclusion, non-irrational real numbers can be ordered as follows:

N \subseteq W \subseteq Z \subseteq Q
