Rules for comparison of numbers:
e.g.,
e.g.,
e.g.,
Ordering of numbers:
(a) Ascending order:
The numbers arranged from the least to the largest are said to be in ascending order.
e.g., 2093, 5146, 7001, 8965, 9900 are in ascending order.
(b) Descending order:
The numbers arranged from the largest to the least are said to be in descending order.
e.g. 9900, 8965, 7001, 5146, 2093 are in descending order.
Estimation:
Rounding numbers to get their approximate values to a specified level of approximation is called estimation.
We use the approximation sign to stand for "approximately equal to".
The estimated value is different from the actual value.
The best estimate is the one in which the difference between the estimated value and the actual value is the least.
Rounding numbers:
Place to which a number is to be estimated 
Place of the digit to be considered 
Value of the digit considered 
What must be done

Rules for rounding off numbers:
(i) While rounding off numbers, it is important to note the place value which has to be rounded off.
(ii) Look at the digit that is after the digit in that place value.
(iii) If the digit is greater than or equal to 5, we round up the number.
(iv) If the digit is lesser than 5, we round down the number.
