#### Worksheet Overview

This activity is about the use of < or > between two numbers.

Example

Put the right symbol > (greater than) or < (less than) between the numbers.

59,137    87,273

59 thousand is less than 87 thousand.

59,137
 <
87,273

When we look at the numbers in the ten thousands place, we can see that 50,000 is less than 80,000. At times, we might need to look at the thousands, hundreds and tens place to compare the numbers.

Example

13,137
 <
13,173

In this example, the numbers are the same until the tens place, which tells us 13,130 is less than 13,170.
