Worksheet Overview

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



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




59 thousand is less than 87 thousand.



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.





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