# Which is greater - 2/9 or 0?

The question is based on comparing integers.

## Answer: 0 is greater than all the negative numbers. So, 0 is greater than -2/9.

Let us compare - 2/9 and 0

**Explanation:**

Let's draw a number line.

- The number on the right horizontal side is always greater than the left side number.
- Positive numbers are placed on the right side of 0, as they are greater than “0”.
**Negative numbers are placed on the left side of “0”, as they are smaller than “0”.**- Zero, which isn't positive or negative, is kept at the center.

Negative numbers < 0 < Positive numbers.

-2/9 is a negative number. So it is always towards the left of 0.

Hence, -2/9 is less than 0.
