The point 1 unit to the right of O corresponds to the number 1. The distance between 0 and 1 determines the scale of the number line. For example, the point associated with the number 2 is twice as far from O as 1. Notice that an arrowhead on the right end of the line indicates the direction in which the numbers increase. Points to the left of the origin correspond to the real numbers -1, -2, and so on. Figure 8 also shows 1 1 the points associated with the rational numbers - and and with the irrational 2 2 numbers 12 and p.
