# For the following statements, write True (T) or False (F). If the statement is false, correct the statement.

# (a) – 8 is to the right of – 10 on a number line.

# (b) – 100 is to the right of – 50 on a number line.

# (c) The smallest negative integer is – 1.

# (d) – 26 is greater than – 25

**Solution:**

We use the concept of integers to write opposites of the given statements.

(a) This statement is true.

(b) This statement is false (F).

Correct statement: -100 is to the left of -50 on a number line since, -50 > -100

(c) This statement is false (F).

Correct statement: We cannot find the value of the smallest negative integer. It goes till infinity.

(d) This statement is false (F).

Correct statement: -26 is smaller than -25.
