As one moves from left to right, much like how many cultures around the world read their languages, the numbers get larger. For example, if you look below, you'll see that the value of $x$ is to the left of the value of $y$. That indicates that $x$ is less than $y$. You'll also notice that $-3$ is to the left of $-2$, again indicating that $-3$ is less than $-2$.</p>
