### Comparing and Ordering Decimals :

Comparing and Ordering Decimals Lesson 1-3

### Using Models :

Using Models If you are comparing tenths to hundredths, you can use a tenths grid and a hundredths grid. Here, you can see that 0.4 is greater than 0.36.

### Using a Number Line :

Using a Number Line Determine the highest and lowest number, and then draw tenths. If hundredths are necessary, draw those. Example: Put the following numbers in order on the number line: 1.4; 1.65; 1.58; 1.84; 1.8 In this example, the number line must be between 1.4 and 1.84.

### Slide 4:

First, fill in the tenths. 1.5 1.6 1.7 Then, fill in the hundredths. Place the decimals on the line. 1.4 1.65 1.58 1.84 1.8 Now the decimals are in order.

### The Easy Way :

The Easy Way Line up the numbers vertically by the decimal point. Add “0” to fill in any missing spaces. Compare from left to right.

### Put these numbers in order:12.5; 12.24; 11.96; 12.36 :

Put these numbers in order:12.5; 12.24; 11.96; 12.36 12 . 5 12 . 24 11 . 96 12 . 36 Fill in the missing space with a zero. 11.96 < 12.24 < 12.36 < 12.5 0
