Third Grade Comparison & Place Value

Comparing Numbers (upto 4 digits) : 
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

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
