Sample Problem

A cable company analyst paid attention to how many new customers it had each day.

New cable customers

Day

Number of new customers

Saturday

    4,010

Sunday

    4,167

Monday

    4,264

Tuesday

    4,376

 

On which day did the cable company have the fewest new customers?

Solution

Compare the thousands digit: there are all 4

Compare the hundreds digit: 0 is the smallest digit.

So the answer is 4010, and it's Saturday.
