No it is not.

No, -42 is actually less than -24.Here is the "pedestrian" way of solving that problem:If the terms have the negative sign, then the least value is the one that has the greater magnitude than another. For instance, 42 has the greater magnitude than 24, but with the negative signs, -42 is less than -24.

Yes it's closer to zero

The only number there that is greater then -24 is -16.

Assume we want to find the number greater than -24.The greatest value of all of these negative integers is the one with the least magnitude. The value with the least magnitude is 16 since 16 < 27, 42 and 30. If we assign the negative signs for these integers, then -16 is considered to be the greatest of all integers given. Therefore, -16 is greater than -24.

-24

.42 > .24

no it is not because two tenths anf four hundredths is like 24 and four tenths and two hundredths is like 42 so 42 is greater than 24

6, 12, 18, 24, 30, 36, 42, 48

Negative

It is: (90-42)+24 = 72

greater10mm=1cm420 divided by 10=4242 > 4.2

I don't know, the answer is 42. And, 42 > 1.

No even number greater than 2 is prime.

the number that is one hundred bigger than 42 is 142

Just divide 4.20 by 42, to find out.

The number line goes from negative to positive and is usually depicted from left to right. The further left of zero a number is, the more negative it is. The further right a number is of zero, the more positive it is. A number is "greater" than another number if it lies further to the right on the number line. So 3 is greater than 1, which is greater than -7. 42.067 is a decimal between 42 and 43 on the number line. 42678 is more than a thousand times larger than it. We say 42678 is GREATER than 42.067, and 42.067 is LESS THAN 42678. :)

17 is less than 442 1/7 is greater than 4/42

42/9 is much greater. 42/9 is the same as 4 and 7/9 (since 9 goes into 42 4 times with 7 left over). Since 5/9 is less than 1, clearly 42/9 is much greater. 7/9 alone would still be greater than 5/9. But since it's not just 7/9, but 4 and 7/9, it is obviously greater than 5/9.

42 - 24 = 18

No.
