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
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.
