Is negative 7 greater than negative 5?

No negative 5 is greater than negative 7. Remember, when you go right on a number line the amount of what you have gets bigger. If you go left on the number line the amount you have gets smaller. In terms, think of this. If you were sitting at $-5, how would you get to negative $-7? You'd go left(spend)? So this means that the amount is getting smaller.

Yes, negative 7 (-7) is less than negative 5 (-5). Negative 5 is closer to zero, which makes it a larger number. ________________________________________________________________ Yes it is, and I am going to explain why it is by using sweets: Let's say you have 7 bags of sweets, If I came and took 7 off you, and then took another 5 of you that would be -5, if I took another 2 off you, then it would be -7, meaning that -7 is greater than -5.
