Predecessor

Method 1- Number that comes before a particular number

Method 2-The predecessor of a number is one less than the given number.

Example: Find predecessor of 75

__According to method 1__A number before 75 is 74. Therefore 74 is the predecessor of 75

__According to method 2__We can say a number less than 75 i.e. 75-1 =74. Therefore 74 is the predecessor of 75

**Note:**The number 0 does not have any predecessor as neither there is any number before it nor we can subtract 1 from it.

Successor
