# In each of the following pairs of numbers, state in which the whole number is on the left of the other number on the number line. Also write them with the appropriate sign (>, <) between them.

(a) 530, 503 (b) 370, 307 (c) 98765, 56789 (d) 9830415, 10023001

**Solution:**

We will be using the concept of comparison of numbers on a number line to solve the given problem.

Given two whole numbers 'a' and 'b' where a < b ('a' is smaller than 'b'), 'a' lies on the left of 'b' on the number line, i.e, A smaller whole number always lies on the left of a bigger whole number on a number line.

(a) Since, 530 > 503

The number 503 is on the left side of 530 on the number line

(b) Since, 370 > 307

The number 307 is on the left side of 370 on the number line

(c) Since, 98765 > 56789

The number 56789 is on the left side of 98765 on the number line

(d) Since, 9830415 < 10023001

The number 9830415 is on the left side of 10023001 on the number line

## In each of the following pairs of numbers, a state in which the whole number is on the left of the other number on the number line. Also write them with the appropriate sign (>, <) between them. (a) 530, 503 (b) 370, 307 (c) 98765, 56789 (d) 9830415, 10023001

**Summary:**

In the following pair of whole numbers, a) 503 is on the left side of 530 on the number line since 530 > 503. b) 307 is on the left side of 370 on the number line since 370 > 307 c) 56789 is on the left side of 98765 on the number line since 98765 > 56789. d) 9830415 is on the left side of 10023001 on the number line since 10023001 > 9830415.
