An inductive definition of an integer is a number that is either zero or an integer plus or minus one. An integer is a number with no fractional part. If written as a fixed-point number, the part after the decimal (or other base) point will be zero.

A natural number is a non-negative integer.

integer

A whole number. In programming, sending the number 123.398 to an integer function would return 123. Integers can be signed (positive or negative) or unsigned (always positive). If signed, the leftmost bit is used as the sign bit, and the maximum value of each sign is thus cut in half. For example, an 8-bit unsigned integer stores the values 0 to 255, whereas an 8-bit signed integer can store -128 to +127. See integer arithmetic and floating point.
