Best Answer

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.

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.
