Comparing Numbers (upto 4 digits) :
Rules of comparison:
Place Value:
The place value of a digit depends on the place where it occurs.
The place value of the digit 0 in a number is always zero wherever the place it is.
Ex: Find the place value of 6 in 5465
Place value of '6' is 6 Tens = 60
Ex: Find the place value of 0 in 5098
Place value of '0' is 0 hundreds = 0
Rules of comparison:
Rule1: | Comparing numbers with different number of digits | |
The number with more digits is always the greater number. Ex: 1238, 786 1238 has 4-digits and 786 has 3-digits. so 1238 is greater than 786 i.e, 1238 > 786 |
||
Rule2: | Comparing numbers with same number of digits: | |
a) Compare the thousands place first, which ever the thousands is greater that number will be greater. Ex: 6000, 5000 6 > 5 so 6000 > 5000 |
||
b) If the thousands are same, compare the hundreds. Ex: 4567, 4678 Hundreds of the numbers are 5 & 6 Since 5 < 6 so 4567 < 4678 |
||
c) When the thousands and hundreds are the same, compare the tens. Ex: 6785, 6739 Tens of the numbers are 8 & 3 Since 8 > 3 so 6785 > 6739 |
||
d) When the other digits are same, compare the ones. Ex: 4567 , 4563 Ones of the numbers are 7 & 3 Since 7 > 3, 4567 > 4563 |
The place value of the digit 0 in a number is always zero wherever the place it is.
Ex: Find the place value of 6 in 5465
Place value of '6' is 6 Tens = 60
Ex: Find the place value of 0 in 5098
Place value of '0' is 0 hundreds = 0
