AcademicMathematicsNCERTClass 6

To do :

We have to write the integer using the number line in each case.

Solution :

(a) Step 1: First mark 5.

Step 2: Move 3 steps to the right.

So, 3 more than 5 is 8.

(b) 5 more than $-5$

Step 1: First mark $-5$.

Step 2: Move 5 steps to the right.

So, 5 more than $-5$ is 0.

(c) 6 less than 2

Step 1: First mark 2.

Step 2: Move 6 steps to the left.

So, 6 less than 2 is $-4$.

(d) 3 less than $-2$

Step 1: First mark $-2$.

Step 2: Move 3 steps to the left.


So, 3 less than $-2$ is $-5$.
