( Hint: When the denominator is a power of 10, we can write it by reversing the procedure used in Slide 7. ) 100 45 = 100 45 45 . MartinGay, Basic College Mathematics with Early Integers 9 MartinGay, Basic College Mathematics with Early Integers 9 Comparing Decimals EXAMPLE EXAMPLE SOLUTION SOLUTION Insert &lt;, &gt;, or = to form a true statement. Comparing Two Positive Decimals Compare digits in the same places from left to right. When two digits are not equal, the number with the larger digit is the larger decimal. If necessary, insert 0s after the last digit to the right of the decimal point to continue comparing. 1.253 1.232 1.253 1.232 The tenths places are the same....
