**Ms. Sue**, Monday, September 24, 2012 at 6:21pmWhy did you put - 47 as the greatest?

so -47, -11, -6, 11, 20

so basically then any negative is smaller than the non negative number? right? if that is right that was easy. I hope i am right.

**Ms. Sue**, Monday, September 24, 2012 at 6:36pmYes, that's right.

I think of negative numbers as money I owe. Positive numbers are money that I have.
