    a simple line would go 1 2 3 4 where we start with small numbers and the numbers to the right are bigger

    the short way to say 2 is bigger than 1 is write 2 > 1 notice the "big" side of > is next to the bigger number we can also write 1 < 2 which says 1 is smaller than 2 the "big" side of < is still next to the 2

    compare that to your problem \[ - \frac{3}{5} > -2 \] which of the numbers -3/5 and -2 is bigger ?
