  # Compare Numbers in Standard Form

In this worksheet, students compare numbers written in standard form or as normal numbers. Key stage:  KS 3

Curriculum topic:   Number

Curriculum subtopic:   Interpret/Compare Standard Form Numbers

Difficulty level:   #### Worksheet Overview

Standard (index) form is a shorthand way of writing a very large or a very small number.

It is written as a  number between 1 and 10 (but not equal to 10) multiplied by a power of 10, for example 2.94 × 102 or 4.8 × 10-3.

In this worksheet, we must compare such numbers.

5830000 = 5.83 × 106

11223392 = 1.1223392 × 107

694000000 = 6.94 x 108

These numbers are in increasing order because 106 numbers are always smaller than 107 numbers etc...

So 5.83 × 106 < 1.1223392 × 107
