#### Learn Decimal Numbers from Certified Online Pre-Algebra Tutor

Decimal numbers are compared in the same way as whole numbers that is by comparing the different place values from left to right. When we compare two decimal numbers. One number is either less than **(<)** , greater than **(>)** or equal to **(=)** the other number.

#### The following steps will help us to compare the decimal numbers:

- The first step is to compare the whole numbers to the left of the decimal point starting from the tens place. Decimal with the greater whole number is greater.
- If the whole number part is the same, then compare the digit at the tenths place. The decimal with the greater tenths digit is greater.
- If the whole number part and the digit in the tenths place are the same, then compare the digit at the hundredths place and so on.

#### Let’s understand with an example:

**1. Compare 53.14 and 53.67**

**Solution:**

In 53.14 and 53.67, the whole number part is the same, i.e. 53.

In 53.14, the decimal part is .**14** and the digit in the tenths place is **1**.

In 53.67, the decimal part is **.67** and the digit in the tenths place is **6**.

But **6>1. **Therefore, **53.67 > 53.14**
