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. -197 < -110

posted by Ms. Sue
2. -197<-110

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

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

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

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

7. Yes.
