maths

today i am going to show you how to use negative number's

here is a number line

                                 
                                                                         
                                -9 -8 -7 -6 -5 -4 -3  -2  -1  0 1  2  3  4  5  6  7  8  9

a negative number is a number below 0 e.g -8 / negative 8
-8 / negative 8 is 8 below 0

now i will show you how to order negative number's

here are some numbers

8 -9 -15 11 2 -43

the numbers will be ordered from least to greatest.

some people get it wrong by saying -12 is greater than -6 this is wrong -6 is greater than -12 because -6 is closer to 0

the way to order these are like this

-43 -15 -9 2 8 11

keep in mind we are ordering least to greatest

thank you for reading
