Think of it this way. numbers can be arranged as such:

......-10 -9 -8 -7 -6 -5 -4 -3 -2 -1 0 +1 +2 +3 +4 +5 +6 +7 +8 +9 +10..... (and so on)

the numbers INCREASES IN VALUE AS YOU PROGRESS TO THE RIGHT such that

-9 is higher than -10

-2 is higher than -19

+4 is higher than -1

+10 is lower than +45

-29 is lower than -2

-2 is bigger than -29 because on a number line, -2 is closer to 0.

-2 is more than -9 ... because in negative number as the number gets bigger its value gets smaller
