How to Compare Two Groups - We all know quite a lot of mathematical definitions, don't we? Well, here are a few more. We'll make sure that we explain to you in as simple words as possible. Have you heard of the word "compare?" You must have. But do you know the meaning of the word? Well, let us explain. Consider that there are five people in a room. Two of them are girls and three of them are boys. To tell people that the number of girls is less than the number of boys, we say that boys are more as compared to girls. Now divide the two girls and three boys into two groups, such that boys are in one group and girls are in another. To say that one group has more people and the other has less, we say that one group of girls has fewer people than the group of boys. In essence, compare means to estimate or find dissimilarity between two groups, people, or things. These worksheets complement counting and observation skills.
