How do we compare numbers using a number line? The farther to the right a number is, the greater it is. -5 < -2 < 0 < 3 < 5 Therefore, when comparing a positive and a negative number, ____________________ the positive number is always greater.

How do we compare negative numbers? The closer a negative is to 0, the greater it is (since it is farther to the right).

5
, or = -3 -10 -0.48 -0.5 -3 > -10 -0.48 -0.5 -4 is closer to 0 than -5 is, so -0.48 > -0.5
