Drawing –8 & –10 on number line
Here, –8 is on right of –10
∴ True
Ex 6.1, 9 For the following statements, write True (T) or False (F). If the statement is false, correct the statement. (b) – 100 is to the right of – 50 on a number line.
Drawing –50 & –100 on number line
So, –50 is on right of –100
∴ False
The correct statement is
–50 is to the right of –100 on a number line.
Ex 6.1, 9 For the following statements, write True (T) or False (F). If the statement is false, correct the statement. (c) Smallest negative integer is –1.
