Hi tina123!

  Look at the number line:

   ... -3   -2    -1    0     1    2    3 ...
_____.___.___.___.___.___.___.___

To the left means smaller or less than.
Since -2 is to the left of -1, then -2<-1.

More generally

...-3<-2<-1<0<1<2<3...

You'll get it! smile

Sorry .. probably  its a stupid question but important for me .

I always have confusion that in real line.
-1 < -2 is true or
-1 > -2
Which is true ?

Thanks
