Please see below.


(1) If the number is to the right of #0#, it is positive.

(2) If the number is to the left of #0#, it is negative.

(3) If there are two numbers on the line, the one on the left is smaller than one on the right.

(4) We can also say that a number on the right is larger than the one to the left of it.
