# Using Number Lines to Represent Integers

An integer is a whole number that comes in three types: positive, negative, or 0. It is not a fraction or decimal.

Integers can be on the left-hand side or right-hand side of zero on the number line.

Zero is in the middle of the number line. Positive integers are on the right side of 0. Negative integers are on the left-hand side of 0.
