Question

# -1.44 -1(1/4)

Negative numbers and coordinate plane
Since $$\displaystyle\frac{{1}}{{4}}$$=0.25, then $$\displaystyle-{1}{\left(\frac{{1}}{{4}}\right)}$$=-1.25. On the number line, -1.44 is to the left of -1.25 which means that -1.44 is less than -1.25. So, $$\displaystyle-{1.44}{<}-{1}{\left(\frac{{1}}{{4}}\right)}$$
