Is a negitive 5 less or greater than negitive 4? I'm thinking the 5 is greater because its the farest from 0. Is that right?

It's larger, in the negative direction :) Which makes it smaller XD

If you're counting backward, like a launch countdown, you are going from bigger to smaller. 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4...
