## MP Board Class 6th Maths Solutions Chapter 8 Decimals Ex 8.3

Question 1.

Which is greater?

Solution:

Before comparing, we write both terms in like decimals :

(a) 0.3 < 0.4

(b) 0.07 > 0.02

(c) 3.0 or 0.8 ⇒ 3.0 > 0.8

(d) 0.50 or 0.05 ⇒ 0.50 > 0.05

(e) 1.23 or 1.20 ⇒ 1.23 > 1.20

(f) 0.099 or 0.190 ⇒ 0.099 < 0.190

(g) 1.50 or 1.50 ⇒ 1.50 = 1.50

(h) 1.431 < 1.490

(i) 3.300 or 3.300 ⇒ 3.300 = 3.300

(j) 5.640 or 5.603 ⇒ 5.640 > 5.603

Question 2.

Make five more examples and find the greater number from them.

Solution:

Five examples are :

(ii) 1.0009 or 1.09

(iii) 10.01 or 100.1

(iv) 5.1 or 5.01

(v) 4.213 or 421.3

Before comparing, we write both terms in like decimals

(i) 1.80 or 1.82 ⇒ 1.82 is greater than 1.8

(ii) 1.0009 or 1.0900 ⇒ 1.09 is greater than 1.0009

(iii) 10.01 or 100.10 ⇒ 100.1 is greater than 10.01

(iv) 5.10 or 5.01 ⇒ 5.1 is greater than 5.01

(v) 4.213 or 421.300 ⇒ 421.3 is greater than 4.213
