1. Rewrite the decimals vertically with the decimal points lined up.

2. Add zero place holders so that all numbers have the same

number of digits.

3. Start with the greatest place value and put them in order.

Example:

4.3, 4.55, 4.09, 4.097

Rewrite:

4.300

4.550

4.090

4.097

Order from greatest to least. 4.550 is the greatest.

(just look at the 550).

Answer: 4.55, 4.3, 4.097, 4.09

Try this one-

Which is smaller? 5.46 or 5.056

Line up the decimal points.

Add zero placeholders.

5.460

5.056

056 < 460

Answer: 5.056
