# COMPARE NUMBERS UP TO MILLIONS

## About "Compare numbers up to millions "

Compare numbers up to millions  :

Compare numbers up to millions is the topic in which we are going to learn how to compare two numbers.

To compare two values that are not the same, we can write an inequality.

Inequalities can be expressed using greater than (>) or less than (<) symbols.

Before going to compare two or more whole numbers, we have to know about what is whole numbers.

The set of all non negative integers is whole numbers.

That is,

W  =  { 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, .........................}

• 0 is less than 1
• 1 is greater than 0 but lesser than 2, 3, 4,..............
• 2 is greater than 0 and 1 but lesser than 3, 4, 5..........
• So the next number is greater than its preceding numbers and lesser than its successive numbers
• A number which is having more number of digits is greater.

## Comparing numbers up to millions - Examples

Example 1 :

Use <, > or = to make the following statement true

16807 ____  16809

Solution :

By observing the given numbers, both are having same number of digits. So we have to compare those numbers by comparing their place values.

Example 2 :

Use <, > or = to make the following statement true

74,684 ____  74,686

Solution :

By observing the given numbers, both are having same number of digits. So we have to compare those numbers by comparing their place values.

Example 3 :

A toy factory manager monitored the number of toys made each month.

 Month Number of toys July AugustSeptemberNovember 31,67936,12831,62736,127

In which month did the factory make the most toys?

Solution :

• By comparing the numbers in ten thousand digits. We have 3 = 3 = 3 = 3
• By comparing the numbers in the thousands digits 6 is greater than 1.
• From this we can decide 31,679 and 31,627 is lesser than the other two.
• Now we have to compare 36,128 and 36,127 and decide which is greater
• By comparing the hundreds and tens digits we have 1 and 2 respectively.
• By comparing the  ones digit 8 is greater than 7.

From this we can decide that, they have produced more number of toys in the month of August.

After having gone through the stuff given above, we hope that the students would have understood "Compare numbers up to millions".
