Opposite Numbers with Number Line

On a number line, positive numbers are distances to the right of zero and negative numbers are distances to the left of zero. Two numbers that are the same distance from zero but in opposite directions are called opposite numbers. The numbers 5 and (-5) are both 5 units from zero, but in opposite directions. Changing the sign of a number moves it to the opposite side of the number line.
