Integer (whole numbers only) = **Ganze Zahl**

Digit (911 has 3 digits) = **Zahlzeichen**

Numeral (0-9) = **Ziffer**

Number (nominal, i.e. for identification) = **Nummer**

Number (mathematical, including fractions; rational, irrational imaginary numbers) = **Zahl**

No, **die natürlichen Zahlen** are the 'natural numbers', i.e. the positive integers that can be used for counting: 1, 2, 3, etc.

'Nummer' is feminine, therefore 'eine' is the appropriate indefinite article. And remember to capitalize your nouns.

Eins is the number 1. https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/eins It is special as it is considered a cardinal number and is only used for counting or math.

The number 1 when used for counting or in math is "eins" http://german.about.com/library/anfang/blanfang07.htm

The article ein/ein/eine/eine (masculine/neuter/feminine/plural) means "a", "an", or "one" as describing a noun. http://german.about.com/library/anfang/blanfang03.htm

Please express why this sentence does not make sense. It makes perfect sense to me.

In Deutschland sagen wir immer, eins ist eine Zahl. Nummer und Ziffer sind eher speziell.
