Answer

a. $\gt$ b. $\lt$ c. $\gt$

Work Step by Step

a. $0 \gt -5$ because $-5$ is further away from 0 on the number line. b. $-3\lt3$ since any negative number is $\lt$ a positive number. They are both the same distance from 0, but 3 is still $\gt-3$ c. -7 $\gt-12$ -7 is greater than -12 since it is closer to 0 on the number line, so -7 $\gt$ -12
