**Negative numbers are denoted by a minus sign** in front of them, such as -8. In this, the first of our difficult quizzes on negative numbers, you will get some more practice in using the number line to add and subtract numbers.

Unlike the first 11-plus Maths quiz on negative numbers, you aren't given a starting point on the number line: don't worry, you can start wherever you like and can add/subtract the numbers in any order you like, but don't forget to apply the following rule: for negative numbers move to the left along the number line BUT for positive numbers move to the right along the number line.

See if you can get top marks - if you are struggling with this quiz, make sure you play our other one first.
