5 ? 0

**Since 5 is to the right of 0 on the number line, then 5 > 0.**

First of all, .

Next we have .

**Since both absolute values equal the same number ½, then .**

-2 ? 2

**Since -2 is to the left of 2 on the number line, then -2 < 2.**

-3 __<__ -3

**Since -3 is the same number as -3 and the statement includes where
the two numbers are equal to each other, then this statement is true.**

2 > 4

Since 2 is to the left of 4 on the number line, then 2 < 4.

**So, the above statement is false.**

-4 is less than 0.

Reading it left to right we get:

**-4 is less than 0**

**-4 < 0**

3 is not equal to -3.

Reading it left to right we get:

**3 is not equal to -3**

5 is greater than or equal to -5.

Reading it left to right we get:

**5 is greater than or equal to -5.**

**5 > -5**
