Basic Math: Number Line

In mathematics, a number line is a picture of a straight line on which every point corresponds to a real number and every real number to a point. Often the integers are shown as specially-marked points evenly spaced on the line. Although this image only shows the integers from −9 to 9, the line includes all real numbers, continuing "forever" in each direction, and also numbers not marked that are between the integers. It is often used as an aid in teaching simple addition and subtraction, especially involving negative numbers. It is divided into two symmetric halves by the origin, i.e. the number zero.

The number line is most often represented as being horizontal. Customarily, positive numbers lie on the right side of zero, and negative numbers lie on the left side of zero. An arrowhead on either end of the drawing is meant to suggest that the line continues indefinitely in the positive and negative reals. The real numbers consist of irrational and rational numbers, as well as integers, whole numbers, and the natural numbers (the counting numbers).
