All positive numbers are greater than all negative numbers.

No. All negative numbers are less than any positive number.

No, because a negative is never bigger than a positive number. So -8 is smaller than +8.

If the positive number is greater than the negative, it's a positive. Ex: 8 + (-3) = 5 If the negative is greater though, then the answer is a negative. Ex: 3 + (-5) = -2

No. Negative numbers are always smaller than positive numbers.

It is greater than the negative square root of 8, but smaller than the positive square root of 8.

No. It's 8 less. A negative number is always smaller than a positive number.

-4 is greater than -8.

No because -5 is greater than -8

Negative 5 is three units greater than negative 8.

0 is in the exact middle of the number line. All positive numbers are to the right of 0 (greater than 0) and all negative numbers are to the left of 0 (less than 0). So no, -8 is not greater than 0.

Try to visualize the numbers on a number line. If one number is more to the right than another one (with the number line in standard position), it is greater. Specifically, any positive number is greater than any negative number.

Yes, 8 is larger than -3. The difference between the two numbers is 11.

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.

Plus 6 is greater than -8

It depends. (a) a positive minus a smaller positive is positive, (b) a positive minus a positive of the same size is zero, and (c) a positive minus a bigger positive is negative. For example, (a) 8 - 6 = 2 (b) 8 - 8 = 0 (c) 8 - 11 = -3

No, negative eight is less than negative two.

Yes

Yes.

no, as -8 is a negative meaning its below 0

If the negative number is bigger it's negative, otherwise positive I am not positive but the answer above maybe incorrect. If you think about absolute value any numbers you add must make a positive. Yes, depending on which number has the greater number. Example -8 plus 9 equals 1. You'll take the positive number sign because 9 is greater than 8. Another example 5 plus -19 the answer is -14 because 19 is greater than 5

negative 8 is greater

No it is more negative. Think of it like this. It's the complete opposite of Positive numbers. (regular non-negative numbers). Also, you have to subtract to get to -8, and obviously subtract means take away.

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