(a) 0.3 or 0.4 (b) 0.07 or 0.02

(c) 3 or 0.8 (d) 0.5 or 0.05

(e) 1.23 or 1.2 (f) 0.099 or 0.19

(g) 1.5 or 1.50 (h) 1.431 or 1.490

(i) 3.3 or 3.300 (j) 5.64 or 5.603

#### Answer:

(a) 0.3 or 0.4

The whole parts of these numbers are same. It can be seen that the tenth part of 0.4 is greater than that of 0.3.

Hence, 0.4 > 0.3

(b) 0.07 and 0.02

Here, both numbers have same parts up to the tenth place. However, the hundredth part of 0.07 is greater than that of 0.02.

Hence, 0.07 > 0.02

(c) 3 or 0.8

It can be seen that the whole part of 3 is greater than that of 0.8.

Hence, 3 > 0.8

(d) 0.5 or 0.05

The whole parts of these numbers are same. It can be seen that the tenth part of 0.5 is greater than that of 0.05.
