Worksheet Overview

QUESTION 1 of 10

In this worksheet, compare two large numbers and use the < (less than) or > (greater than) symbols.

Numbers will be no larger than 10 million (10 000 000).

 

In this worksheet, we will group digits in threes, leaving spaces between each group.

4 578 025 is the number 4 million, 578 thousand, and 25.

 

When comparing two numbers, think of placing each digit into the usual columns.

*Note that the U means units or ones.

Then start comparing the digits in each column from the left.

If the digits are the same in the column being compared, move one column to the right and compare those digits.

 

Example 1

Compare:

4 275 302  box  5 110 243

 

Answer

When placed in columns, we can compare the millions column.

The first number has only 4 million. 

The second number has 5 million.

Example 2

Compare:

4 275 302  box  4 210 243

 

Answer

When placed in columns, we can compare the millions column.

They are both 4 million.

 

So we go to the next column – the hundred thousands column.

They are both 2 hundred thousand.

 

So we go to the next column – the ten thousands column.

The first number has 7 in this column.

The second number has 1 in this column.

Example 3

Compare:

275 302  box  2 710 243

 

Answer

When placed in columns, the number on the right has the digit 2 in the millions column.

The number on the left doesn't have a digit in the millions column. Call it zero.

0 < 2
