greater than.

No.

As 6 is a positive integer, no negative integer is greater than it.

No because -6 is less than 3

10

No, -3 is greater than -6.

No because -5 is greater than -6

-6 is greater than -7

Positive 10 is greater than negative 2. A good way to help visualise is to imagine a number line with 0 in the middle. 1,2,3,4 head off to the right, and -1, -2, -3, -4 head off to the left. The further the right a number is, the greater it is. So 6 is greater than 2. 8 is greater than 0, and 10 is greater than negative 2.

Any positive number is always GREATER than any negative number.

If you consider only the magnitude of the two numbers (disregarding the signs) then 6 is greater than 3. But when we have signed numbers, we have to imagine the number line. On the negative side of zero, a negative number closer to zero is considered greater than a negative number that is farther from zero. Similarly on the positive side of zero, a positive number closer to zero is considered smaller than a positive number that is farther from zero. I hope that explains it. -6 -5 -4 -3 -2 -1 0 1 2 3 4 5 6

Plus 6 is greater than -8

The negative integers greater than -6 are: -5, -4, -3, -2, -1.

Not necessarily; a positive number plus a negative number will be a positive number if the positive number is greater. Example: 10 + (-6) = 4

less than

Yes

yes

Negative 6 is greater than negative 8 because -8 is 8 less then 0 and -6 is only 6 less then zero..

The answer is 0. -6 + 6 = 0. It takes the sign of the greater number. Since the numbers are equal it becomes neither. 0 is neither a positive nor negative number. For another example if the problem was -6 + 10, Since 10 is the greater number your answer will be positive. 10 - 6 = 4. (Just change the positive + sign to the negative - sign).

no 0 is neither positive or negative

-6 is greater than -17. Consider temperatures: a temperature of 6°C is warmer than 3°C and would be considered greater (6 > 3); a temperature of -6°C is warmer than -17°C, and so -6 > -17.

It's makes positive because positive is stronger than negative. Negative and negative is positive.

It does not always become negative , only if the negative number is greater then the positive number. Ex:-5 + 6 = 1 -6 + 5 = -1

There are no positive integers less than any negative ones.
