    Yeah, sure. So, do you understand how positive and negative numbers work?

    (That sounds like something I can assume the answer to.) Okay, that being said, what exactly do you need help with? Let me give an example. Two digits, -25, -12. Which one is a larger value?

    The more negative a number, the lower it is. Think of it as a number line from negative infinity <---------------> to positive infinity

    I don't give out answers, but I can help you to the answer. Yeah. That being said, we can safely assume that all negative numbers are less than all positive numbers, right? Given any set of numbers, in this situation, you have two positives and two negatives, you can by default group the two next to each other, e.g. -20, -7, -1, 9, 18. Right?
