Natural Numbers

posted by .

Is this correct, or where did I go wrong in my answer.

Give a reason to support: The natural numbers {1,2,3,4,5,...}are not a group under addition.
My reason:
0 is not included in the group since it is not included by identity property it can not be conducted making this group of numbers not a group under addition.
