### Numbers: Integers

### Ordering of integers

Ordering of integers

If we move to the left on the number line, the numbers become smaller. For example, #-3# is **smaller than **#2#. In symbols we write this as #-3<2#.

The arrow on the number line indicates the numbers smaller than or equal to #2#. Here, #2# itself is also **smaller than or equal to **#2#. In symbols, we write this as #2\leq 2#.

If we now move to the right on the number line, the numbers become bigger. For example, #3# is **bigger than **#1#. In symbols we write #3\gt1#.

The arrow on the number line indicates the numbers bigger than or equal to #1#. Here, #1# itself is also **bigger than or equal to** #1#. In symbols, we write this as #1\geq 1#.
