2Using 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.
3Using 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.
4First, fill in the tenths. 1.41.581.651.81.8184.108.40.206First, fill in the tenths.Then, fill in the hundredths.Place the decimals on the line.Now the decimals are in order.
5The Easy Way Line up the numbers vertically by the decimal point. Add “0” to fill in any missing spaces.Compare from left to right.
6Put 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
