I have to put these intergers in order from least to greatest.
12, 6, 20, 47, 11
I didn't do well on my last test. I am really trying to figure this out.
my answer is
6, 11, 12, 20, 47

Ms. Sue,
Why did you put  47 as the greatest?
Check a number line.

Ms. Sue
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,
Yes, that's right.
I think of negative numbers as money I owe. Positive numbers are money that I have.
