Question

Find the statement that best describes the inequality -6 > -12.

  1. 6° is colder than 12°    
  2. 6° is warmer than 12°    
  3. -6° is colder than -12°    
  4. -6° is warmer than -12°    

Hint:

We are given an inequality. We have to describe the inequality and write the statement in words. For this question, we will check the limits of the inequality. Using the limits, we can write the statement.

The correct answer is: -6° is warmer than -12°


    The given inequality is as follows:
    -6 > -12
    We are given the comparison of two temperatures. Both are negative temperatures.
    The inequality says that -6 is greater that -12.
    Now, negative temperature represents how cold things are. If the temperature is more negative it means it’s colder.
    So, the statement for the above inequality is
    -6° is warmer than -12°

    For such questions, we should know about the limits.
