LO: to compare decimal numbers (up to 3 dp)


Yesterday we looked at ordering sets of decimals, today we are going to compare decimals. Can you remember the symbols for comparing?


> greater than

< less than

= equal


So, if I were to compare the following numbers 1.563 and 1.653  (using my learning from yesterday) I know that 1.563 is smaller so I would write it as 1.563 < 1.653.


Look at the numbers below and write the correct symbol.
