Adjacent figure is a vertical number line, representing integers. Observe it and locate the following points : (A) If point D is + 8, then which point is − 8?
(B) Is point G a negative integer or a positive integer?
(C) Write integers for points B and E.
(D) Which point marked on this number line has the least value?
(E) Arrange all the points in decreasing order of value.

SOLUTION:

(A) We have, point D is +8.
Therefore, 16 steps to the down from D is −8 i.e., the point G.
(B) Point G is a negative integer.
(C) Point B is four steps down from point D.
∴ Value of point B = +8 − 4 = +4
Point E is eighteen steps down from point D.
∴ Value of point E = +8 − 18 = −10
(D) Since, point E is located in the bottom. So, point E has the least value.
(E) Decreasing order of all the points is, D, C, B, A, O, H, G, F, E
