(i) – 15, – 23

(ii) – 12, 15

(iii) 0, 8

(iv) 0, – 3

Solution:

(i) -15, -23

-15 lies on the right side of -23 on the number line. Therefore, -15 is greater than -23

(ii) -12, 15

15 lies on the right side of -12 on the number line. Hence, 15 is greater than -12

(iii) 0, 8

8 lies on the right side of 0 on the number line. Therefore, 8 is greater than 0

(iv) 0, -3

0 lies on the right side of -3 on the number line. Hence, 0 is greater than -3

3. In each of the following pairs, state which integer is smaller :

(i) 0, – 6

(ii) 2, – 3

(iii) 15, – 51

(iv) 13, 0

Solution:

(i) -6 lies on the left side of 0 on the number line. Hence, -6 is smaller than 0

(ii) -3 lies on the left side of 2 on the number line. Therefore, -3 is smaller than 2

(iii) -51 lies on the left side of 15 on the number line. Hence, -51 is smaller than 15

(iv) 0 lies on the left side of 13 on the number line. Therefore, 0 is smaller than 13

(i) 3 lies on the right side of 0 on the number line ⇒ 3 > 0

Hence, 3 is greater than 0

(ii) 0 lies on the right side of -8 on the number line ⇒ 0 > -8

Therefore, 0 is greater than -8

(iii) -9 lies on the left side of -3 on the number line ⇒ -9 < -3

Hence, -9 is smaller than -3

(iv) -3 lies on the left side of 3 on the number line ⇒ -3 < 3

Therefore, -3 is smaller than 3

(v) 5 lies right side of -1 on the number line ⇒ 5 > -1

Hence, 5 is greater than -1

(vi) -13 lies left side of 0 on the number line ⇒ -13 < 0

Therefore, -13 is smaller than 0

(vii) -8 lies on the right side of -18 on the number line ⇒ -8 > -18

Hence, -8 is greater than -18

1. Use a number line to evaluate each of the following:

1. (i) (+7) + (+4) (ii) 0 + (+6) (iii) (+5) + 0

2. (i) (-4) + (+5) (ii) 0 + (-2) (iii) (-1) + (+4)

3. (i) (+4) + (-2) (ii) (+3) + (-6) (iii) 3 + (-7)

4. (i) (-1) + (-2) (ii) (-3) + (-4) (iii) (-2) + (-5)

5, (i) (+10) – (+2) (ii) (+8) – (-5) (iii) (-6) – (+2)

(iv) (-7) – (+5) (v) (+4) – (-2) (vi) (-8) – (-4)

Solution:

1. (i) (+7) + (+4)

Move 7 units to the right of zero for (+7) and move 4 units to the right of +7 for (+4) Hence, (+7) + (+4) = +11

(ii) 0 + (+6)

No movement for 0 and move 6 units to the right of zero for (+6) Hence, 0 + (+6) = +6

(iii) (+5) + 0

Move 5 units to the right of 0 for (+5) and for 0, no movement Hence, (+5) + 0 = +5

2. (i) (-4) + (+5)

Move 4 units to the left of 0 for (-4) and move 5 units to the right of -4 for (+5) Hence, (-4) + (+5) = +1

(ii) 0 + (-2)

No movement for 0 and move 2 units to the left of 0 for -2 Hence, 0 + (-2) = -2

(iii) (-1) + (+4)

Move 1 unit to the left of 0 for (-1) and move 4 units to the right of -1 for (+4) Hence, (-1) + (+4) = +3

3. (i) (+4) + (-2)

Move 4 units to the right of 0 for (+4) and move 2 units to the left of +4 for (-2) Hence, (+4) + (-2) = +2

(ii) (+3) + (-6)

Move 3 units to the right of 0 for (+3) and move 6 units to the left of 3 for (-6) Hence, (+3) + (-6) = -3

(iii) 3 + (-7)

Move 3 units to the right of 0 for (3) and move 7 units to the left of 3 for (-7) Hence, 3 + (-7) = -4

4. (i) (-1) + (-2)

From 0, move 1 unit to the left for (-1) and move 2 units to the left of -1 for (-2) Hence, (-1) + (-2) = -3

(ii) (-3) + (-4)

From 0, move 3 units to the left for (-3) and move 4 units to the left of -3 for (-4) Hence, (-3) + (-4) = -7

(iii) (-2) + (-5)

Move 2 units to the left from 0 for (-2) and move 5 units to the left of -2 for (-5) Hence, (-2) + (-5) = -7

5. (i) (+10) – (+2)

From +2, it took 8 steps to reach the position of number +10 to the right Hence, (+10) – (+2) = +8

(ii) (+8) – (-5)

Starting from the position of -5, it took 13 steps towards right to reach +8 Hence, (+8) – (-5) = + 13

(iii) (-6) – (+2)

From +2, it took 8 steps towards left to reach -6 Hence, (-6) – (+2) = -8

(iv) (-7) – (+5)

From +5, it took 12 steps towards left to reach -7 Hence, (-7) – (+5) = -12

(v) (+4) – (-2)

From +4, it took 6 steps towards left to reach the number -2 Hence, (+4) – (-2) = +6

(vi) (-8) – (-4)

From -8, it took 4 steps towards right to reach -4 Hence, -8 – (-4) = -4

6. Using a number line, find the integer which is:

(i) 3 more than -1

(ii) 5 less than 2

(iii) 5 more than -9

(iv) 4 less than -4

(v) 7 more than 0

(vi) 7 less than -8

Solution:

(i) 3 more than -1

To get 3 more than -1, from -1 move 3 units to the right of -1 to get 2 Therefore, 3 more than -1 = 2

(ii) 5 less than 2

To get 5 less than 2, from 2 move 5 units to the left of 2 to get -3 Therefore, 5 less than 2 = -3

(iii) 5 more than -9

To get 5 more than -9, from -9 move 5 units to the right of -9 to get -4 Therefore, 5 more than -9 = -4

(iv) 4 less than -4

To get 4 less than -4, from -4 move 4 units to the left of -4 to get -8 Therefore, 4 less than -4 = -8

(v) 7 more than 0

To get 7 more than 0, from 0 move 7 units to the right of 0 to get 7 Therefore, 7 more than 0 = 7

(vi) 7 less than -8

To get 7 less than -8, from -8 move 7 units to the left of -8 to get -15 Therefore, 7 less than -8 = -15
