Types of numbers at a glance


There are lots of different types of numbers on the number line. Rational numbers are numbers that can be written as a fraction where the numerator and denominator are integers, whereas irrational numbers cannot be written in this way.


Integers are whole numbers that include positive and negative numbers, and natural numbers (sometimes called counting numbers) are positive integers. Fractions, decimals and percentages are different ways of representing a proportion of the same amount.


Even numbers can be divided by 2 with a remainder of 0 whereas odd numbers cannot. Prime numbers only have two factors, themselves and 1, whereas composite numbers have more than two factors. 


Multiples are the result of multiplying a number by an integer and factors are numbers that will divide into an integer with no remainder.

Looking forward, students can then progress to additional number worksheets, for example a Percentage worksheet or a Rounding worksheet.
