A Finite Set is a set (with Finite Set Members) whose Set Cardinality is an N0 Natural Number.

**Context:**- It can range from being Finite Nonempty Set to being an Empty Set.
- …

**Example(s):**- The Empty Set, because Zero is an N0 Natural Number.
- {1}, a Degenerate Set.
- {1,2,3,4,5}.
- …

**Counter-Example(s):**- an Infinite Set.

**See:**Countable Set.

- In mathematics, a set is called finite if there is a bijection between the set and some set of the form {1, 2, ..., n} where n is a natural number. (The value n = 0 is allowed; that is, the empty set is finite.) An infinite set is a set which is not finite.
- Equivalently, a set is finite if its cardinality, i.e., the number of its elements, is a natural number. More specifically, a set whose cardinality is n is also called an n-set. For instance, the set of integers between −15 and 3 (excluding the end points) has 17 elements, so it is finite; in fact, it is a 17-set.
