What's greater, -4 or -6?

option a: -4 > -6 option b: -4 < -6. also I have similar questions like these so if you say option a is correct does that mean any lower negative number that is closer to zero is the one greater than?

-4 is greater, because it is closer in proximity to zero. If it helps, visualize a number line - 4 is further to the right than -6 is. This is true of all negative numbers - if a negative number's positive equivalent is less than the positive equivalent of another negative number, then that negative number is greater.

-4

-4 is greater because it is closer to the zero, and anything that is more than zero is greater. So -4 is your answer.

Report as

-4 so u see, -4 is closer to 0.

Report as

-4 is greater. this is because as you move closer to 0 it becomes a larger number. Think, anything that is closer to 100 is larger. then when you go along the number plane the further you go from 0 or 100 the smaller the number. i.e. -4 is a larger number than -6

Report as

-4 is bigger than -6 because it is opposite with negatives

Report as

-4 because it is closer to 1 than -6
