Sample Problem

Which set of decimals is ordered from the greatest to least?

Solution

Compare all digits in the ones place: all are 8.

Compare the digits in the tenths place: 2 > 1 > 0.

So 8.25 is the greatest.

Compare the digits in the hundredths place between 8.1 and 8.13: 3 is greater than 0.

So 8.13 is greater than 8.1.

So you get 8.25 > 8.13 > 8.1 > 8.06.
