If $$a$$ and $$b$$ are nonzero numbers on the number line, is $$0$$ between $$a$$ and $$b?$$

(1) The distance between $$0$$ and $$a$$ is greater than the distance between $$0$$ and $$b.$$
(2) The sum of the distances between $$0$$ and $$a$$ and between $$0$$ and $$b$$ is greater than the distance between $$0$$ and the sum $$a + b.$$
