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

You 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.
