# Which number is greater 16 or 23?

**Solution:**

While comparing two-digit numbers, the number with the larger digits in tens place is greater. If digits at the tens place are the same, then the number with the larger digit in ones place is greater.

Let's compare 16 and 23

As we can see the digits at tens place are 1 in 16 and 2 in 23

Since 2 > 1

Therefore, 23 is greater because it has a larger digit at tens place.

Thus, the greater number among 16 and 23 is 23.

## Which number is greater 16 or 23?

**Summary:**

23 is a greater number among 16 and 23.
