Hello I need to ask a question. This is all new to me as we are just learning this in school.

How would I write an inequality with -197 and -110?

1. Ms. Sue

-197 < -110

2. bobpursley

-197<-110

Think about the number line, and where you would place those numbers. More negative always means less...

3. Donald

Hello Mr. Bobpursley and Ms. Sue are you saying that when -197 is on the number line on the negative side that it would be always less than a number that is before the number -197? Please advise.

4. Donald

Or do you mean the greater the negative number the less it is regarding the number in front of it?

5. Ms. Sue

Think of it like owing money. If you owe \$197, you'll have less money than if you owe \$110.

6. Donald

Hello Ms. Sue that makes sense so -197 is less than -110?

7. Ms. Sue

Yes.

8. Donald

Thank you Ms. Sue and Mr. Bobpursley :)

9. Ms. Sue

You're welcome.
