00:00:02.640 --> 00:00:04.840
Circle the lowest of these bank balances.
00:00:06.560 --> 00:00:18.160
0.10 pounds, negative three pounds, 0.00 pounds, or negative 0.55 pounds.
00:00:18.480 --> 00:00:23.520
Well, to help us solve this problem, what I’ve done is I’ve put our values on a number line.
00:00:24.640 --> 00:00:32.080
So we’ve got negative three pounds, negative 0.55 pounds, or negative 55 pence.
00:00:32.320 --> 00:00:33.720
We’ve got zero pounds.
00:00:34.240 --> 00:00:38.720
And we’ve got 0.10 pounds or 10 pence.
00:00:40.440 --> 00:00:41.920
Well, we’re looking for the lowest value.
00:00:43.040 --> 00:00:46.440
Well, the lowest value is the value that’s the furthest to the left on our number line.
00:00:47.280 --> 00:00:49.800
So therefore, it’s gonna be negative three pounds.
00:00:51.760 --> 00:00:56.400
So therefore, the lowest of the bank balances is negative three pounds.
00:00:57.480 --> 00:01:05.520
We could’ve also seen this because if we’re looking at negative numbers, the greater the negative number, the lower the value it is.
00:01:06.360 --> 00:01:14.600
So therefore, negative three pounds is a bigger number, so a bigger negative than negative 0.55.
00:01:15.080 --> 00:01:16.640
So therefore, it is less.
00:01:17.000 --> 00:01:18.680
So it’s gonna be a lower balance.
