Sample Problem

Entry  “longer” or “shorter” in the blanks.

1) The length of a river is than 1 yd.

2) The length of a face towel is than 1 yd.

3) The length of a toothbrush is than 1 yd.

4) The length of a book is than 1 yd.

Solution

1) A  river is much longer than 1 yd.

2) A face towel is less than 1 yd.

3) The length of a toothbrush is just little longer than our hands. So it’s less than 1 yd.

4) A book is obviously less than 1 yd.
