Any positive number is always greater than any negative number. Positive numbers is always to the right of zero in the number line while negative numbers are to the left. Even the number zero is greater than a negative number.
Positive numbers are always greater than negative numbers. Think of positive numbers as money in a bank and negative numbers as bills you owe (I.e. Negative bank balance)
