How to Compare Two Decimal Values Learning decimals can be very tricky; especially when you have to compare decimal numbers with each other. In order to understand this, you need to learn about number 1; which is a whole. All decimal numbers are part of the whole 1. Let's further understand this with an example of two decimal numbers 0.54 and 0.85. Here, you are provided with two decimal numbers with an equal number of digits. With the following steps below, you can easily compare two decimal numbers. First, you will need to identify how closer each number is nearest to 1. Then the closest number to 1 will be the largest decimal number among the two. In this case, 0.85 is greater than 0.54 (0.85 > 0.54). It is simpler to compare decimal numbers when the number of digits is the same. However, for decimal numbers having unequal number of digits, we need to look at the decimal places of the number. If the tenth place of both decimals is different. Then simply, the number with the largest tenths value will be greater. For example: 0.45 < 0.72. In this case, 7 is greater than 4, so the greater decimal number is 0.72. A collection of lessons and worksheets that have students compare decimal values to the hundredths place.
