Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Let's look at them one at a time. On the first one: Can you tell me what 7 + (10) is? Can you tell me what 13 + 17 is?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay, so on (1), remember that "<" means " to the left of on a number line ". If you mark your 3 and your 4 on a number line, does 3 lie to the left of 4 ? If so, the first one is true. What do you think?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So what's your answer .... do you think 3 lies to the left of 4 on a number line? (Yes or no)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yep! So the first one is true. Good. Now, tell me the values of the leftside and rightside on the second one.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Perfect. So, the question here is: Is 9 > 11 ">" means "to the right of" on a number line. Plots 9 and 11. Does 9 lie to the RIGHT of 11 on a # line? (Yes or No)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Correct. So, the second one is false. For the third one, remember the "=" means "live at the same place on a number line". Try that one, and tell me what you think the answer is.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yep, it's false. 6 and 6 definitely don't live at the same place on a # line. The last one is the trickiest of all these. Simplify the left side; simplify the right, and remember what ">" means ... you try it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0By the way, there are memory devices for remembering what ">" and "<" mean here: http://www.onemathematicalcat.org/algebra_book/online_problems/big_small.htm (The memory devices here work with both positive and negative numbers, so they're more versatile than the "alligator" memory devices).
