# Which is greater?

(i) 0.5 or 0.05 (ii) 0.7 or 0.5 (iii) 7 or 0.7

(iv) 1.37 or 1.49 (v) 2.03 or 2.30 (vi) 0.8 or 0.88

To check whether a decimal is greater than or smaller than the other decimal, we first convert them into like fractions then compare.

**Solution:**

(i) 0.5 or 0.05

0.5 _ 0.05

5/10 _ 5/100

Converting decimals them into like fractions, we get

5/10 × 10/10 _ 5/100× 1/1

50/100 > 5/100

0.5 > 0.05

Therefore,0.5 is greater than 0.05.

ii) 0.7 or 0.5

7/10 _ 5/10

Hence, 7/10 > 5/10

Therefore,0.7 is greater than 0.5.

iii) 7 or 0.7

7 _ 7/10

7/1 × 10/10 _ 7/10

70/10 > 7/10

Hence ,7 > 0.7.

Therefore, 7 is greater.

iv) 1.37 or 1.49

137/100 _ 149/100

137/100 < 149/100

Therefore, 1.37 < 1.49

Hence, 1.49 is greater.

v) 2.03 or 2.30

203/100 _ 230/100

203/100 < 230/100

Therefore, 2.03 < 2.30

Hence, 2.30 is greater.

vi) 0.8 or 0.88

8/10 _ 88/100

Converting them into like fractions, we get

8/10 × 10/10 _ 88/100

80/100 < 88/100

Therefore, 0.8 < 0.88.

Hence, 0.88 is greater.
