When comparing and ordering numbers, we should refer to a number line and look at the position of the number on the line in relation to 0 to determine its value.Any number to the right is always greater than any number to the left. This applies to both positive and negative integers.

When placing integers on a number line, we first look at the sign to see whether it is a positive or negative number. Then we look at the digit to determine how far away from 0 the number should go. All negative numbers are less than 0 and placed to the left of the 0 on the number line.

Comparing and ordering integers
In this lesson, students learn to compare integers by graphing the integers on a number line. The integer to the left on the number line is always less than the integer to the right. Since negative integers are to the left on a number line, and positive integers are to the right, a negative integer is always less than a positive integer.

Write the following integers from the least to the greatest.
-12, 7, 0, -1, 11

-7, 4, -10, 0, 18, -1
How to order integers on the number line and review the definitions of absolute value and opposites.
The absolute value of a number is the distance between the number and zero on the number line.
Opposites are two numbers that are the same distance from zero, but on the opposite side of zero on the number line.


 
Opposite of a given number
