2 Using ModelsIf you are comparing tenths to hundredths, you can use a tenths grid and a hundredths grid. Here, you can see that 0.4 is greater than 0.36.
3 Using a Number LineDetermine the highest and lowest number, and then draw tenths. If hundredths are necessary, draw those.Example: Put the following numbers in order on the number line: 1.4; 1.65; 1.58; 1.84; 1.8In this example, the number line must be between 1.4 and 1.84.
4 First, fill in the tenths. 1.41.581.651.81.8220.127.116.11First, fill in the tenths.Then, fill in the hundredths.Place the decimals on the line.Now the decimals are in order.
5 The Easy Way Line up the numbers vertically by the decimal point. Add “0” to fill in any missing spaces.Compare from left to right.
6 Put these numbers in order: 12.5; 12.24; 11.96; 12.36 12 . 5Fill in the missing space with a zero.11.96 < < < 12.5
