The football team gained 9 yards so that would be a positive number. Then they lost 22 yards so that would be a negative number. If you go to the left of the number line it would be a negative number. If you go to the right of the number line it would be a positive number. If you go to the left the numbers are getting smaller. If you go to the right the numbers are getting bigger. Hope this helps
