**(i)** 3.3 or 3.300

**(j)** 5.64 or 5.603

Solution.

**(a)** **0.3 or 0.4**

Whole part for both is 0.

Tenth part for 0.3 is 3 and for 0.4 is 4

∵ 4>3

∴ 0.4 > 0.3

**(b) 07 or 0.02**

Whole part for both is 0.

Tenth part for both is 0.

Hundredth part for 0.07 is 7 and for 0.02 is 2.

∵ 7>2

∴ 0.07 > 0.02

**(c) 3 or 0.8
**Whole part for 3 is 3 and for 0.8 is 0.

∵ 3 >0

∴ 3 >0.8

**(d) 5 or 0.05
**Whole part for both is 0.

Tenth part for 0.5 is 5 and for 0.05 is 0.

∵ 5 >0

∴ 0.5 > 0.05

**(e)** **23 or 1.2**

Whole part for both is 1.

Tenth part for both is 2.

Hundredth part for 1.23 is 3 and for 1.2 is 0 (as 1.2= 1.20)

**(f) 0.099 or 0.19
**Whole part for both is 0.

Tenth part for 0.099 is 0 and for 0.19 is 1.

∵ 1>0

∴ 0.19 >0.099

**(g)1.5 or 1.50**

Whole part for both is 1.

Tenth part for both is 5.

Hundredth part for both is 0 (as 1.5 = 1.50).

∴ 1.5=1.50

**(h) 1431 or 490
**Whole part for both is 1.

Tenth part for both is 4.

Hundredth part for 1.431 is 3 and for 1.490 is 9

∵ 9>3

∴ 1.490 >1.431

**(i) 3 or 3.300**

Whole part for both is 3.

Tenth part for both is 3.

Hundredth part for both is 0 (as 3.3 = 3.30).

Thousandth part for both is 0 (as 3.3 = 3.300).

∴ 3.3 = 3.300

**(J) 5.64 or 5.603 **

Whole part for both is 5.

Tenth part for both is 6.

Hundredth part for 5.64 is 4 and for 5.603 is 0.

∵ 4>0

∴ 5.64 > 5.603

Question 2.

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

Solution.

**Five more examples are as follows:**

Which is greater?

Ex. 1. 0.4 or 0.5

Ex. 2. 0.06 or 0.04

Ex. 3. 4 ox 0.9

Ex. 4. 0.6 or 0.06

Ex. 5. 0.063 or 0.22

Solution.

**1.
0.4 or 0.5**

Whole part for both = 0

Tenth part for 0.4 = 4

Tenth part for 0.5 = 5

∵ 5 >4

∴ 0.5 > 0.4

**2.
0.06 or 0.04**

Whole part for both = 0

Tenth part for both = 0

Hundredth part for 0.06 = 6

Hundredth part for 0.04 = 4

∵ 6 >4

∴ 0.06 > 0.04

**3.**

**4 or 0.9**

Whole part for 4 = 4

Whole part for 0.9 = 0

∵ 4 > 0

∴ 4 > 0.9

**4.**

**0.6 or 0.06**

Whole part for both = 0

Tenth part for 0.6 = 6

Tenth part for 0.06 = 0

∵ 6 > 0

∴ 0.6 > 0.06

**5.**

**0.063 or 0.22**

Whole part for both = 0

Tenth part for 0.063 = 0

Tenth part for 0.22 = 2

∵ 2 > 0

∴ 0.22 > 0.063.
