The positive number is always greater. However, the modulus of a negative number may be greater. Here is the number line. -infinity,.... -5,-4,-3,-2,-1, 0,+1,+2,+3,+4,+5 .... + infinity. So reading the number line, +2 > -4 . However, the modulus of '-4' is greater than the modulus of +2. . It is written as |-4| > |+2|, that is the number four is greater than the number two. Note the pair of vertical lines. NB I have put in the positive (+) sign to compare against the negative (-), however, a number that does not show a sign is read as positive(+).
