If the integer is positive, then you plot it at a distance of that many units to the right of the origin (zero-point). If the integer is negative, the point is to the left of the origin.

There is no such number. You can always go one more integer to the left.

Negative. Sorry. No you do not. Adding a negative to a negative gives you a number that is even more negative. Picture a number line. A negative number is to the left of zero, and adding a negative number moves further left. ■
