Draw a number line and answer the following:
(a) Which number will we reach if we move 4 numbers to the right of $– 2$.
(b) Which number will we reach if we move 5 numbers to the left of 1.
(c) If we are at $– 8$ on the number line, in which direction should we move to
reach $– 13$?
(d) If we are at $– 6$ on the number line, in which direction should we move to
reach $– 1$?

To do:

We have to draw a number line and answer the given questions.

Solution:

(a) 

Therefore,

If we move 4 numbers to the right of $-2$, we will reach 2.

(b) 

Therefore,

If we move 5 numbers to the left of 1, we will reach $-4$

(c) 

$-13$ lies to the left of $-8$ on the number line.

Therefore, we should move in the left direction

(d) 

$-1$ lies to the right of $-6$ on the number line.

Therefore, we should move in the right direction.
