**Comparing Integers on a Number Line**

A number line can be use to compare numbers.

number line

The farther a number is to the right on a number line, the greater the

number. The farther

a number is to the left on a number line, the smaller the number.

Another way to say it: If a number is to the left of a number on the

number line, it is less than the other number. If it is to the right then

it is greater than that number
