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
Why did you put - 47 as the greatest?
Check a number line.
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.
Yes, that's right.
I think of negative numbers as money I owe. Positive numbers are money that I have.
thank you so much
You're very welcome.
