(i) We know that -7 is to the left of 8. (ii) -8 is to the left of -7, (iii) -1000 is to the left of -999, (iv) -111 and-111 coincide in the number line. (v) 0 is to the right of -200,  Question 10.
Arrange the following integers in ascending order.
i) -11, 12, -13, 14, -15, 16, -17, 18, -19, -20
ii) -28, 6, -5, -40, 8, 0, 12, -1, 4, 22
iii) -100, 10, -1000, 100,0, -1, 1000, 1, -10
Solution:
(i) -11, 12, -13, 14, -15, 16, -17, 18, -19, -20

• First separating the positive integers 12, 14, 16, 18 and the negative integers -11,-13,-15,-17,-19,-20.
• Then arranging the positive integers in ascending order we get 12, 14, 16, 18 and negative integers in ascending order as -20, -19, -17, -15, -13, -11 4
• Now the ascending order : -20, -19, -17, -15, -13, -11, 12, 14, 16, 18.

(ii) -28, 6, -5, -40, 8, 0, 12, -1, 4, 22

• Positive integers are 6, 8, 12, 4, 22 Negative integers are -28, -5, -40, -1
• Arranging the positive integers in ascending order we get 4, 6, 8, 12, 22 and the negative integers in ascending order -40, -28, -5, -1
• The number 0 is neither positive nor negative and stands in the middle.
• In ascending order : -40, -28, -5, -1, 0, 4, 6, 8,12, 22

(iii) -100, 10, -1000, 100, 0, -1, 1000, 1, -10

• Separating positive integers 10, 100, 1000, 1 and negative integers -100, -1000, -1, -10.
• Now the positive integers in ascending order 1,10,100,1000 and the negative integers in ascending order. -1000, -100, -10, -1
• Also ‘0’ stand in the middle as its is neither positive nor negative.
• ∴ The numbers in ascending order: -1000, -100, -10, -1, 0, 1, 10, 100, 1000. Question 11.
Arrange the following integers in descending order.
i) 14, 27, 15, -14, -9, 0, 11, -17
ii) -99, -120, 65, -46, 78, 400, -600
iii) 111, -222, 333, -444, 555, -666, 7777, -888
Solution:
(i) 14, 27, 15, -14, -9, 0,11, -17

• Separating the positive integers 14, 27, 15, 11 and negative integers -14, -9, -17
• Arranging in descending order we get the positive integers 27,15,14,11 and the negative integers -9, -14, -17.
• ‘0’ is neither positive nor negative and so it stands in middle.
• ∴ The numbers in descending order : 27, 15, 14, 11, 0, -9, -14, -17

(ii) -99, -120, 65, -46, 78, 400, -600

• Separating the positive integers 65, 78, 400 and negative integers -99, -120, -46, -600
• Arranging the positive integers in descending order as 400, 78, 65 and the negative integers in descending order -46, -99, -120, -600.
• The numbers in descending order : 400, 78, 65, -46, -99, -120, -600.

(iii) 111, -222, 333, -444, 555, -666, 7777, -888

• Separating the positive integers 111, 333, 555, 7777 and negative integers -222, -444, -666, -888
• Arranging the positive integers in descending order as 7777, 555, 333, 111 and negative integers in descending order as -222, -444, -666, -888
• The numbers in descending order : 7777, 555, 333, 111, -222, -444, -666, -888
