Explanation
The number -4 would go to the left of 0 on a number line because it is a negative number. In a number line, positive numbers are placed to the right of 0 and negative numbers are placed to the left of 0. Since -4 is a negative number, it would be located to the left of 0.

Explanation
The numbers -3 and 3 are opposite because they have the same magnitude (absolute value) but different signs. In other words, one is positive and the other is negative. This is a common way to define opposite numbers in mathematics.

### Numbers greater than 0 are positive?
