    thats easy we know that the "OPPOSITE" of any positive number is negative so we know that the opposite of this relationship must be negative

    for example 1<2 this in a statement means 2 is greater than 1 but if they were the opposite -1>-2 this would be the statement which says -1 is greater than -2

    -1 is closer to being 0 than -2
