### Comparison of Decimals

Step 1:  Compare the whole parts. The decimal having greater whole part is greater.

Note : In case of equal whole parts, follow the step 2.

Step 2: Compare the decimal part, the decimal having greater decimal part is greater.

Compare between 9.2 and 7.9 and find which is greater?

Solution:

Whole part of 9.2 = 9 Whole part of 7.9 =7 $\text{9}>\text{7}.\text{ So 9}.\text{2}>\text{7}.\text{9}$

Compare 14.7 and 14.3, which is greater?

Solution:

Whole part of 14.7 =14

Whole part of 14.3 = 14

$\because$Both the decimals have same whole part, therefore, compare decimal parts.

The digit at the tenths place in 14.7 = 7

The digit at the tenths place in 14.3 = 3

$\text{7}>\text{3}.\text{ So 14}.\text{7}>\text{14}.\text{3}$
