Comparing and Ordering Integers


Show Answers

------ Note: The Information above this point will not be sent to your printer --------

Compare the pairs of integers below and mark either < or > to show which number is greater (the first two are done for you.)

 

-6 < 2

5 > -16

-6 < -5

-73 > -78

-3 > -4

9 < 10

-17 < 18

-9 < 9

-6 < -5

-14 > -15

0 > -46

-34 > -47

-1 > -6

-2 > -4

7 > 6

-196 > -199

 

Place these integers in order starting with the least or smallest (the first one is done for you.)

-6

-8 10    -8   -6   10 

0

-5 -4    -5   -4   0 

12

-12 16    -12   12   16 

-4

-3 -8    -8   -4   -3   

-6

7 -8 5  -8   -6   5   7 

0

18 -22 20  -22   0   18   20 

-56

17 -85 99  -85   -56   17   99 

42

-17 -12 -43  -43   -17   -12   42

Related Resources

The various resources listed below are aligned to the same standard, (6NS07) taken from the CCSM (Common Core Standards For Mathematics) as the Integers Worksheet shown above.

Understand ordering and absolute value of rational numbers.

  • Interpret statements of inequality as statements about the relative position of two numbers on a number line diagram. For example, interpret -3 > -7 as a statement that -3 is located to the right of -7 on a number line oriented from left to right.
  • Write, interpret, and explain statements of order for rational numbers in real-world contexts. For example, write -3 oC > -7 oC to express the fact that -3 oC is warmer than -7 oC.
  • Understand the absolute value of a rational number as its distance from 0 on the number line; interpret absolute value as magnitude for a positive or negative quantity in a real-world situation. For example, for an account balance of -30 dollars, write |-30| = 30 to describe the size of the debt in dollars.
  • Distinguish comparisons of absolute value from statements about order. For example, recognize that an account balance less than -30 dollars represents a debt greater than 30 dollars.
