Number Quizzes & Trivia

In this quiz the knowledge represented will include: negative numbers, positive numbers, and number line ends and placing. This quiz will help people to identify positive and negative numbers and where they need to be placed on a number line?


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The number line has 2 positive ends?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    The number line does not have positive ends. It extends infinitely in both the positive and negative directions. Therefore, it does not make sense to say that it has "positive ends".

    Where would -4 go on a number line?

    • A.

      Right of 0

    • B.

      Left of 0

    • C.

      On the middle

    Correct Answer
    B. Left of 0
    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.

    • A.

      3,3

    • B.

      -3,3

    • C.

      0,3

    Correct Answer
    B. -3,3
    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.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Numbers greater than 0 are positive?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Numbers greater than 0 are considered positive because positive numbers are any numbers greater than 0. In mathematics, positive numbers are values that are greater than zero and can be represented on the positive side of the number line. Therefore, any number greater than 0 is considered positive.
