# In each of the following pairs, which number is to the right of the other on the number line?

(a) 2, 9 (b) – 3, – 8 (c) 0, – 1

(d) – 11, 10 (e) – 6, 6 (f) 1, – 100

**Solution:**

We use the concepts of positive and negative integers on a number line to answer which given number is to the right of the other on the number line.

Given two integers 'a' and 'b' where a > b, 'a' will always lie on the right of 'b' that is, a greater integer will always lie towards the right of a smaller integer on a number line. Let's answer the following using this concept.

(a) On the number line, 9 is to the right of 2

(b) On the number line, -3 is to the right of -8

(c) On the number line, 0 is to the right of – 1

(d) On the number line, 10 is to the right of -11

(e) On the number line, 6 is to the right of -6

(f) On the number line, 1 is to the right of -100.
