Yes. -5.18>-5.7

____________________

"Bigger than" isn't a term that a mathematician would use. However, -5.18 is "greater than" -5.7, because it's closer to being a positive number.

It's easier if you think of heights. A hole that is 5.18 inches deep is "higher than" a hole which is 5.7 inches deep, because in this case, the bigger negative number means "deeper".
