    Simply put, the Internet is a large interconnected series of webpages, the WWW is a large network of interconnected computer networks. Hope this helps and saves you a bit of reading on Wikipedia

    The Internet is a global system of interconnected networks that use the Internet Protocol suite to share information.

    The World Wide Web is a subset of the Internet that is a system of interlinked hypertext documents..

    Strictly speaking, the WWW is the information you can access via the http and https protocols. The Internet also includes SMTP, POP3, and IMAP for email, FTP, VoIP, IPTV, gopher, telnet and many other protocols and services.
